Hard-Facing Types 


HF 1000 :

Crushed Tungsten Carbides are fused together within a tough polycrystalline matrix of nickel. The 3mm grain size ensures greater concentration of carbide which is ideal for soft formation drilling  .


 HF 2000 :

In this hard-facing, trapezoidal tungsten carbide inserts are held in a sintered carbide nickel bronze matrix. This will give a greater depth of carbide coverage – ideal for high deviation drilling in abrasive formations  .


 HF 3000 :

Metal Powder spray is used to fuse the tungsten carbides. This spray deposit is ideal for abrasive formations. Recommended for non-magnetic stabilizers and sleeves .
