NanoSteel's Super Hard Steel® (SHS) thermal spray cored wires are patented steel alloys designed specifically for twin wire arc spraying (TWAS) applications and to provide high abrasion, corrosion and erosion resistance.
SHS 8000 is NanoSteel's best thermal spray coating material for resisting erosion in high temperature environments. The material chemistry of SHS 8000 has been optimized for boiler tube coating applications in power plants. Application example: Coal fired and biomass boiler tube coatings
formation of nano-scale microstructure during application
"When applied by the TWAS process, SHS cored wires form a metallic coating with a nano-scale microstructure which provides a unique combination of high hardness and toughness properties resulting in superior wear performance unmatched by conventional materials." (see product link)
