This material includes tungsten carbide, cobalt, and a nickel based alloy mix to create a high hardness and extreme wear resistant deposit that can be sprayed with helium, nitrogen, or air. The relative toughness and strain tolerance in comparison to many thermal sprayed carbides give this material advantages in applications in which high wear and high mechanical stresses are present, without sacrificing the wear performance of the material. While hardness is typically 600-700 HV depending on spray conditions, this material has shown excellent performance in metal-on-metal and abrasive wear testing. Typical applications include sealing surfaces, wear pads, shaft journals, and similar wear parts. WC02 has been applied to steel, stainless steel, nickel alloys, aluminum, and titanium often using a bondcoat such as BC01 to enhance bonding for higher hardness mateirals such as hardned steel. Deposits can be machined by grinding primarily due to the high hardness of the material although some have used PCD tooling to maching under single point tooling. WC02 is flowable and is inertly packed in packages of 1, 2.5, and 10 pounds.
