Composite Flexible Rope or Rod
Our Composite Flexible Rope or Rod is made of either crushed or spherical carbides embedded in a NiCrBSi matrix which exhibits exceptional wear resistant properties on a wide range of tools.
The coating is applied using a large Oxy-Acetylene torch, having first mechanically cleaned the surface and tinned it using our SuperJet Eutalloy S torch and powder from our DrilTec STC 400 series. Pre-heat is governed by the base metal of the component being coated. The rope is applied using a slightly carburizing flame to melt the rope and bond it to the base material. On very small components, TIG can be used, but this may reduce the wear-properties of the alloy.
