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 9172 is NanoSteel's best performing thermal spray cored wire for resisting abrasive wear in high temperature environments. SHS 9172 also features high bond strength across a range of substrate materials including steel, aluminum and copper. Application example: Coal fired and biomass boiler tube coatings; dry scrubber turning vanes coating
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)
