Your Global Resource for Hardfacing and Welding Technology

Hardfacing is a group of welding related techniques, also called cladding or overlaying. The purpose is to restore the dimensions of worn surfaces of used parts and equipment, and to extend their useful working life by depositing, by welding, a new harder and longer lasting material.

When applied to a new part, the aim is to improve the life expectancy of the original item by applying layers of a longer wearing, more complex alloy.
