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.

Typical Use:

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

Apparent use of Nanotechnology: formation of nano-scale microstructure during application
Reason for Inclusion:

"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)
