Common Application of Tungsten Carbide Hardfacing


Due to the high hardness of tungsten carbide hard facing brings to the tools, many industries are using the tungsten carbide hardfacing technique. The common applications of tungsten carbide hard facing is deep drilling tools. Other industries where the technique is excelling are in dredging teeth, tunneling shields, earth moving machines, milling plates, conveyor screws, mixer blades, down whole reamers, extruders, and mixer paddles and scraper blades. Additional applications include components for grinding, shredding, sawing, gripping, and mixing.

They’re extremely important for severe abrasion/ wear resistance and cutting applications. Tungsten carbides make up nearly 60% of tungsten consumption in engineering practice.



Advantages of Tungsten Carbide Hardfacing

Many benefits come with tungsten carbide hardfacing wear parts to both the user and producers. Here are the main benefits of this technique:

Hardness up to 70 Rc

  1. Easy to apply with low current

  2. Unsurpassed wear and corrosion resistance

  3. Use in extreme abrasion environments

  4. Incorporates intact tungsten carbide particles for maximum abrasion resistance

  5. More abrasion resistant than Chromium Carbide

  6. Provides 300%-800% wear life compared to typical hardfacing wires

  7. Easy to apply

  8. Prolongs the life of parts

  9. High tool’s cutting performance

  10. Increased Production

  11. Reduced cost of maintenance



Tungsten carbide hard facing is a technique that is changing industrial tools manufacturing. It enables factories to minimize the cost of production by reducing the amount of tungsten carbide in producing wear parts.
