Hallamshire Engineering Services has reported increasing demand for its specialist wear resistant coatings from the cement and concrete production industry, as well as the brick and mineral mining sectors.
The company, specialising in the application of wear resistant coatings, is the exclusive UK supplier of TENROCKTM hardfacing materials. These include TENROCK 1000, a chromium carbide-based product that is the mainstay of the TENROCK range. It offers anti-abrasion properties and is used where resistance to high stress grinding abrasion is required. Other coatings in the portfolio include TENROCK 2000 and 3000, which are both tungsten carbide coatings. TENROCK 2000 is a cast tungsten carbide that provides wear protection and enhanced service life, whereas TENROCK 3000 ensures increased shock and impact resistance and good overlay characteristics, as a result of its fine spherical grain structure and high apparent density.
Hallamshire Engineering Services’ hardfacing materials provide a dense homogenous coating between 2 mm and 10 mm thickness, that offers high wear and impact resistance. The average density of the TENROCK 2000 and 3000 coatings is 13.6 kg/dm3 and they can be applied to a wide range of components. These tungsten carbide coatings are applied alongside atomised nickel alloy powders, with hardness values generated by an optimised chromium-boron-silicon content.
“Manufacturers are increasingly looking to extend the lifetime of their assets and are therefore seeking high quality hard facing coatings that save costs and extend replacement intervals,” said Tony Walters, External Sales Engineer for Hallamshire Engineering Services. “We have seen an increase in demand for our specialised wear resistant coatings over the past 12 months, because they provide customers with major benefits in terms of enhanced longevity for a wide range of equipment.”
