Nominal Chemistry (wt%): WC – 17%Co
Premium high toughness nano-engineered tungsten-carbide cobalt (WC-Co) materials; have a high deposition efficiency (better yields, lower cost), and 5-7 times the ductility and toughness of conventional, micro-grain carbides. These materials are ideal for use in valve trim and seats on gate valves, sand erosion, and three body wear environments. PComP™ W611 test results from our customers have shown 3-7 times the life in downhole applications over conventional materials; leading to the lowest coating life cycle cost in this segment.
PComP™ W611 coatings replace electroplate hard chrome(EHC) and conventional WC –Co coatings such as Sulzer-Metco Diamalloy® 2005 and Praxair LW-1N40® in many industries including aerospace landing gear, Oil & Gas downhole and pump components. These coatings have application where WC coatings and additional wear resistance or ductility is required.
