WC-17 CO Tungsten Carbide Powder

83% WC 17% Co (Agglomerated and Sintered) 

-45/+15 µm

PMET 83-17 (WC 17CO) is a tungsten carbide powder for HVOF thermal spray coatings. It has a higher Co level that provides better toughness, impact strength, and ductility than the popular WC-12Co. The dense structure of the powder provides superior coating density and increased powder flow. It produces an abrasive coating with a service environment up to 900°F (482°C).

Applications:

  • Shrouds
  • Exhaust Fans
  • Extrusion Dies
  • Pump Seals
  • Crushing Rollers
  • Sucker Rod Couplings
