Iron based hardfacing alloys for abrasive and impact wear
Iron-based hardfacing alloys are widely used to counteract abrasive and impact wear of industrial components in soil, sand and mineral processing applications. These alloys show a high performance to cost ratio as well as a low environmental impact. The wear resistance of the components hardfaced with these alloys depends on achieved coating microstructure i.e. on the alloys chemical composition, the coating method and process parameters selected.
