Wear Resistant Materials

REDI-CLAD™ – Chromium Carbide Overlay

Redi-Clad is a fusion bonded overlay of chromium carbides deposited on a high strength carbon plate. This unique process creates a true metallurgical bond. As deposited, the overlay has a developed hardness of Rockwell "C" 60/62 and offers an unmatched abrasive resistance for various heavy industrial applications.

Redi-Clad cannot separate from its high strength base plate because the surface of the base plate is actually melted and combines with the overlay.


• Up to 10X the life vs. heat treated plate in high abrasive applications
• About 20X the life of carbon steel plate in high abrasive applications
• Can be welded with low hydrogen welding rod
