AbrasaStuds™ are Avweld’s newest solution to high wear applications, particularly in heavy mineral transporting and processing environments. The complex carbide studs provide outstanding wear resistance, whilst maintaining excellent impact resistance. The weight to wear-resistance ratio outperforms many other hardfacing types by many times.
Wear studs are extremely fast to install, and can be done in-situ. The welding process requires just a power source and Avweld’s stud gun. Localised repairs are possible, without needing to replace entire sheets of wear plates. The studs are applied in a staggered, closely arranged lattice pattern, controlling the flow of material over the work surface.
