Engineered Alloys

Postle Industries increased its offerings to include a hardfacing wire for extreme abrasion applications, a high-hardness alloy for high stress grinding applications, a manganese steel surfacing wire for equipment restoration, and a matrix welding wire for tungsten carbide embedding. Both Postalloy 2826 and Postalloy 2828-FCO, hardfacing wire for use in extreme abrasion applications like bucket teeth, present wear characteristics similar to those of chromium carbide hardfacing products, the company reported. Postalloy 2836-SPL and Postalloy 218HD resist severe abrasion, including high-stress grinding, low-stress scratching and gouging abrasion. Applications include grizzly bars, conveyor screws and slag ladles. For manganese steel equipment and parts restoration, Postle offers two alloys. Postalloy 2865-FCO and Postalloy 2850-FCO.
