Q
Which type of abrasion resistant material should be used in specific applications for optimal wear life?
A
Our range of abrasion resistant wear materials cover most applications, but it is recommended that we assess the specific conditions and make recommendations based on such assessment. We will gladly send a technical representative to do an assessment.
Q
Which welding procedure or welding consumable can be used to weld quenched abrasion resistant plate?
A
It mainly depends on the thickness and grade (e.g. 400bhn; 450bhn; 500bhn) of the plate, and what the application is. Also, are two of the same plates welded together, or is it welded to a dissimilar material? Our welding technologist can assist in recommending the correct procedure for the application, as many factors like heat input, vibration etc. plays a vital roll.
Q
Is it possible to make drawings from worn samples or from templates if no drawings are available?
A
Yes, we make drawings from samples and templates. We will also send a technical representative to a site to measure parts for replacement in situ.

We refer all questions regarding design, development, project management and abrasive blasting and coating to the relevant technical specialist. This is due to the diverse application range and product range.
