LSN Diffusion Carbide Blend Alloy Powders

Wear resistance is one of the most significant challenges for machinery with moving parts. LSN Diffusion offers a range of self-fluxing nickel alloy powders blended with hard tungsten-carbide particles, providing excellent resistance to abrasive wear even at elevated temperatures.

Depending on the process used, particle size distributions may change. LSN Diffusion selects the tungsten carbide grade to suit the coating application method.

Thermal Spray
Agglomerated and sintered tungsten carbide particles are recommended for thermal spray processes. They boost spraying efficiency and provide the highest integrity of tungsten carbide to the nickel matrix.

Plasma Transferred Arc
Cast tungsten carbides are ideal for this surfacing method, where processing temperatures are significantly higher. They provide minimal dissolution into the nickel alloy matrix.
