Hard, Smooth, Lightweight

    ColWear Wear Plates


    Wall Colmonoy’s range of ColWear Plates offer a unique solution to the most aggressive wear problems in wet or dry, hot or cold and corrosive environments.

    ColWear Plates are smooth, crack free, lightweight, have minimal dilution and provide hardness down to the fusion line.

    As a world leading manufacturer of nickel-based hard-surfacing alloys, Wall Colmonoy coatings have been extending the service life of industrial parts for over 80 years. Plates protected with Colmonoy® Surfacing Alloys – last significantly longer than unprotected parts in aggressive service environments.

    ColWear Plates’ lightweight, thin construction from a weldable mild steel or stainless steel backing plate enables ease of handling, forming and fabrication, and can be used in a wide range of industries and applications.

    Request Literature

    ColWear Plates provide a dense, tough surface which is resistant to abrasion, erosion and impact with excellent ASTM G65 test results.

    Unlike bulk weld overlay wear plates, ColWear Plates do not suffer from surface cracking, coarse surface finish or base plate metal dilution.

    Process Control
    ColWear Plates are produced by the closely controlled process of vacuum fusing the matrix coating to the baseplate, resulting in a homogeneous coating and consistent micro structure, offering matrix hardness in the range of 55 – 64 HRC (other hardness ranges available).

    ColWear Plates are vacuum powder fused and coated with Colmonoy® NiCrBSi or Wallex® CoCrNiW powder matrix, with or without Tungsten Carbide (WC).
