Hardfacing, also known as hard surfacing is the application or buildup of wear-resistant weld metals to a parts surface by welding or joining together to strengthen the makeup of the materials. This is done so, due to metal parts often failing from wear causing them to lose dimension and functionality. Hardfacing may be applied to a new part during production to increase its wear resistance, or it may be used to restore a worn down surface. By servicing the surface with hardfacing, the service life is extended drastically, resulting in significant savings.


The result of significant savings in machine down time and production costs has meant that many industries have adopted the process. Steel, cement, mining, oil and gas to name a few of the industries that have taken the advantage of hardfacing. Some of the most typical wear that occurs are shown in the following percentages: Abrasion, forty percent of the time, impact twenty five percent, metallic, heat, corrosion all at five percent.



Hardfacing can be applied using thermal spraying, spray-fuse and welding processes are generally used to apply the hardfacing layer. Once the layer is applied, it takes a heavy duty superabrasive to grind down the surface for maintenance. Our diamond wheel lineup, is perfect for tackling the complex challenge of working on hardface materials. We use the correct bonds for the job and are able to customize wheels on six different core materials!
