Added wear life

In certain situations an added level of wear resistance is required to allow a part to stay in the field for longer.

In these situations, and where Armacarb is not permitted due to financial or design constraints, Chapmans recommend Armaweld which is our unique hard face welding. Typical applications are along the leading edges of cultivation legs where the abrasive nature of the soil can quickly erode an expensive part.

Some of our customers request a hard face weld with extra levels of carbide in called Armaweld Plus. This specialist welding contains added flakes of carbide to create an even more durable edge.

Armaweld specialist welding contains added tungsten carbide at up to 40% content, to create an even more durable edge. This ensures an even consistency of toughness with no soft areas, as seen with tungsten granule type additions in the hard facing.
