Eutectic releases BoroTec 600
By Andrew Macklin
April 19, 2016 – Eutectic introduced a hard wire with no hazardous chromium by-products that can be used in a wide range of steel components subject to severe abrasion or erosion by mineral particles, sand, rocks and gravel.
BoroTec 600 Cr-Free is engineered with boron carbides in place of chromium carbides. This hardfacing wire offers a deposit efficiency of 90 per cent and provides abrasive and erosive wear resistance superior to chromium carbide (60-65 HRC) without exposing the welder to harmful hexavalent chromium fumes, while complying with OSHA and NIOSH regulatory standards.
BoroTec 600 is ideal to repair equipment in the cement, construction, quarrying, asphalt, mining and dredging industries. It is available in 1.2 and 1.6 mm. diameters.
