P-Ni 40 PTA

General Information

PT-MAT™ Ni 40 PTA is a Ni,Cr,B,Si based metal powder used for Hard facing or as a buffer layer for coating with a higher hardness. The alloy shows good corrosion resistance.


PT-MAT™ Ni 40 PTA is applied through plasma powder surfacing or laser cladding on low alloy to high alloy steel.
The powder exhibits excellent weld ability and a very fluid puddle.
The powder is a very good candidate to add tungsten carbide for excellent wear resistant hard facing.
The medium range hardness makes the coating suitable for machining.
