    A Dense, Tough Surface Resistant to Corrosion, Abrasion, Erosion and impact

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

    • Provide a dense, tough surface resistant to abrasion, erosion, corrosion and impact
    • Extend equipment service life
    • Reduce downtime, increase uptime

    ColWear Plates offer a unique combination of properties that suit a wide range of applications due to the inherent properties of the fused Colmonoy® (nickel) or Wallex® (cobalt) coating.


    Optical micrograph (original at 500x magnification) and measured hardness values (HRC) of a ColWear Plate at varying positions within the cross section indicating a clean interface, with no dilution of the base plate and regions of ultra-high hardness due to homogeneous dispersion of tungsten carbide.

    Microstructure

    • Colmonoy® or Wallex® matrix alloys to suit application requirements, with or without WC
    • Addition of Tungsten Carbide (WC) creates pockets of ultrahigh hardness within the coating designed to resist sliding abrasion and abrasive wear
    • Clearly defined fusion line
    • No dilution of the base plate
    • Minimum porosity within the coating
    • High alloy matrix hardness

    Coated Hardsurfacing Alloys

    ColWear Plates are vacuum powder fused wear plates coated with Colmonoy® NiCrBSi or Wallex® CoCrNiW powder matrix, with or without Tungsten Carbide (WC). Typical examples below, however, additional ColWear Plates are available to suit your specific application.  We continue to make metals work harder with new and innovative alloys that outperform competition.
