Hard-facing with Ropes

Technodur and Technosphere  are available in 20 kg reels (also possible in 10 or 15 kg upon request) allowing an economic and reliable weld.These materials are applied with the Technokit T2000, an oxyacetylene torch.
Welding is easy and economic. It offers the major advantage of preserving the hardness of the Tungsten Carbide particles…

Use :

Technodur and Technosphere  can be applied to all non-martensitic  steels and weld able stainless steels.The deposits are free from cracks and any deformation caused by welding is very limited.
Technodur  and Technosphere® can be welded easily onto themselves. This is a real advantage for some repairs.

Technodur : Crushed Tungsten Carbide grains – Hardness 2000 HV ± 200 HV

Since the beginning Technodur has represented a very significant advance in the field of anti-wear protections.
They give new possibilities and advantages:

  • no smokes
  • no loss during welding
  • exceptional resistance to abrasion
  • ease of repairs
  • no cracks

Technosphere : Spherical cast Tungsten Carbide grains – Hardness 3000 HV ± 500 HV

The difference lies in the use of spherical Tungsten Carbide grains called Spherotene.
The spherical shape and the extreme hardness of the Spherotene  give Technosphere , amongst other properties, two advantages:

  • Better shocks resistance
  • Unequalledwear resistance
