Postalloy® BT 2954

Postalloy®BT 2954 is a iron based bare tubular rod for oxy-acetylene applications manufactured with over 60% tungsten carbide particles. It is an ideal solution for extreme abrasion resistant applications and moderate to low impact. Also, good for metal-to-earth applications involving extreme abrasion and moderate to low impact. It is well suited for applications requiring thin deposits. It can be applied to carbon and low alloy steels. Can be used in hot wear applications up to 900°F (482°C) .
