NanoSteel's Super Hard Steel® (SHS) cored wires for weld overlay applications are patented steel alloys which provide superior wear performance in extreme service environments for increasing the life of industrial parts and components.
Applied via Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) and Open Arc Welding (OAW) as an alternative to chrome carbides, complex carbides and tungsten carbide alloys for wear. SHS 9192 is NanoSteel's best performing cored wire for abrasive wear resistance in extreme service environments. Application examples: Hardfacing for loader buckets, dozer blades and excavator buckets, fan blades and feed screws; Overlay wear plate for rotary vane feeder drums and blower fan blades
formation of near nano-scale microstructure when welded
"When welded, SHS cored wires form a near nano-scale microstructure with a unique combination of high hardness and toughness properties." (see product link)
