Reamco Inc. provides many types of Hardfacing such as the following:
Tungsten = Composite rod utilizes a non-ferrous matrix to suspend the carbide. It is the best known Hardfacing and is used in formations which are soft to medium in hardness. It is best suited to welded blade stabilizers.
Tungsten Carbide Inserts(TCI)= is another Hardfacing which lends itself to hard abrasive drilling. Although it is declining in use in some areas due to being replaced by superior Hardfacing, Reamco still offers it.
X-Tra Life= is Reamco's premier Hardfacing which suspends fine tungsten carbide pellets or crushed material in a hard, ferrous matrix. The matrix itself will attain a hardness of approximately 45 Rc and is completely saturated with carbide.
Geothermal= Geothermal Hardfacing utilizes tungsten carbide bricks which are brazed to the stabilizer blade and surrounded by tungsten impregnated composite rod.
And excellent Hardfacing for hard, abrasive drilling.
