The BMI® hardfacing cord is a flexible continuous electrode, made from a nickel wire covered by a thick coating binder. This elastic binder is composed of high nickel alloy (NiCrBSi) matrix enveloping grains of ground and crushed tungsten carbides (WC or WC2) of different sizes.
During the processing and application, the matrix (nickel-based powder) and the nickel wire “merge like a braze” in order to envelop the tungsten carbide grains and thus form a compact coating bound resistant against erosive and abrasive attacks.
This deposit, combining ground / grains (FR82® FTC) or spherical (FR92® SFTC) tungsten carbide and high strength braze, can be used in various industries against erosive and abrasive attacks.
BMI® products respond perfectly to all the demands of these industries: clay industry (brick, tile factories), drilling industry, agro-industry, mines and quarries, energy, cement industry, steel industry.
BMI® hardfacing cords are very easy to use, but if you need help, our teams are available to assist you further.
