Whatever your requirements are for hardfacing down hole tools, you can be rest assured that the right consumable is only a click away. Choose from a wide collection of items that are everyday essentials in the hardfacing process. From brazing rods, brazing flux, flexicoy and hardbanding we have it all, making your hardfacing journey a smooth one. Where required we can customise our consumables for your specific needs, speak to one of our team for further information.

Nickel Bronze Brazing Rod

  • High strength UTS of 80,000 PSI, work hardening up to 100,000 PSI
  • Securely holds tungsten carbide whilst cushioning from shocks
  • High fluidity allows for ease of flow
  • Flux coated rods available

Nickel Bronze brazing alloy is for use in laying inserts on heavy duty cutting mills or when laying a composite rod. It’s a high strength 10% nickel alloy, with a UTS of 80,000 PSI (avg) with a potential of work hardenable up to 100,000 PSI, making it well suited to this application.

Metal Spray Powder

  • Designed to produce reliable bonds with tungsten carbide and TSP Xtreme
  • Available with a blend of fused tungsten carbide
  • Available in non-magnetic grades
  • A range of hardness options available, from 20 to 60 HRC

Cutting & Wear produce a range of nickel based Metal Spray Powders principally for bonding tungsten carbide inserts, used mainly in association with the Cutting & Wear QuickTip process. Other grades are produced which incorporate fused tungsten carbide. Also available in non-magnetic grades for use on critical non-magnetic applications.

Brazing Flux

  • Cleans the surface to improv bond
  • Water Soluble options available to make a paste
Brazing Flux cleans the surface of steel in order to improve the bond with tungsten carbide based products. We can supply in both 12 mesh and 30 mesh. Also available is Pink Flux, a water soluble powder which is mixed to a paste, used when applying flux to tools at room temperature before heating.

Grinding Wheels

  • Specifically engineered for grinding various types of hardfacing
  • Cut efficiently whilst offering good wheel life
  • Available in sizes from 1-5/8” to 36” OD
Cutting & Wear’s range of grinding wheels have been developed over many years for grinding tungsten carbide on drilling tools. This is a universal grade for grinding most hardfacing types. We can offer a range of grades and sizes to suit your requirements

Flexicoy

  • Deposited to form a tough wear resistance surface
  • Good corrosion resistance
  • Easy and economical application
Flexicoy has pure nickel core surrounded by a thick coating consisting of an alloy matrix and fused tungsten carbide. When deposited together it forms a tough wear resistant surface. Available for components subject to high levels of wear, such as stabiliser blades.
