Spherotene

Spherotene®

Patented technology of spherical tungsten carbide production for hardfacing.

About the technology

Spherical geometry as such is a wear resistance tool since it provides sliding off and complete removal of abrasive particles and particles causing erosive wear.

The round shape ensures uniform smooth formation of the hardfacing layer (similar to armor).

Hardfacing using Spherotene® provides a significantly improved carbide coating application efficiency and increases part durability.

Spherotene® hardness is 3,000 Hv. This value is higher than for crushed tungsten carbide, the maximum hardness of which is 2,300 Hv.
