PS-10 PLUS Extreme Abrasion

POSTALLOY®PS-10 PLUS is a nickel base hardfacing cored wire containing a special blend of tungsten carbides for extreme abrasion as well as corrosion. The matrix is resistant to acids, bases, lye and other corrosive media. The alloying elements in this wire produce a higher hardness weld deposit that encapsulates and protects the carbide particles, reducing premature wear caused by erosion next to the carbide particles. As a result, it achieves a considerable service life improvement in extreme applications compared to regular PS-10. The alloy has a low melting range and features good weldability with a smooth arc, reduces weld dilution and carbide dilution to produce a truly outstanding multi-wear wire.

  • This alloy can be applied crackfree with the proper procedures, including preheat and interpass temperatures.

  • Weld deposits cannot be flame cut

  • Deposit thickness 2 layers maximum

  • Service temperature up to 1000 F (530 C)
