Saint-Gobain TufCote® is a hard-facing "rope like" electrode used to improve ABRASION & EROSION resistance.
TufCote® is brazed using a oxygen-acetylene torch making the process user friendly for onsite applications. It can be welded on mild steel, low carbon steel, low alloyed steel, stainless steel, lamellar grey cast iron, spheroid cast iron. It can also be brazed on certain alloys of manganese steel with precautions. TufCote® is weld-able on itself, making local repair or recycling of parts possible.
The choice of correct grade of TufCote® depends upon type an size of abrasive material it will operate in, temperature, impact etc.
