When the Going Gets Tough: Tuf-Cote® Rope Hard-facing Solutions

When your application calls for a tough coating to protect against extreme process conditions, Tuf-Cote® ropes provide the ideal brazed hard-facing solution to increase service life & performance of your parts & equipment. 

Tuf-Cote® rope is a brazed hard-facing material that creates tough wear-resistant coatings designed to increase the life of industrial components by 3 to 10 times. These ropes impart coatings that are extremely resistant to abrasion, erosion, corrosion & oxidation at both ambient & high temperatures, making them the ideal hard-facing material for oil & gas, power generation, drilling, mining, waste treatment, steel production & other demanding applications.

Easy Application for a Tough, Economical Hard-facing Solution

Tuf-Cote® ropes require minimal capital investment to apply: Overlays are brazed onto parts using an acetylene-oxygen torch, which can be done in shop or on site. In addition to saving money in the application process, Tuf-Cote® ropes deliver extremely tough, wear-resistant overlays that significantly extend the life of parts & equipment.

Technically Superior Chemistry for Maximum Toughness

Chemically, Tuf-Cote® ropes feature a tungsten carbide base with a nickel self-fluxing matrix. These hard-facing materials are offered in spherical or angular forms, with a range of formulations designed to meet specific process needs. With tungsten carbide particles sizes up to 1.6 mm (1/16 inch), Tuf-Cote® ropes can deliver the optimal hard-facing solution for your application.
