PMET 83-17 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).
