PMA VERSAlloy® 40-60 - Nickel Alloys

Rankin PMA VERSAlloy® Nickel wear-facing alloys offer excellent resistance to the effects of corrosion, erosion, high temperature oxidation, abrasion, and metal-to-metal wear. Nickel is tougher, harder, and more durable than metal steel alloys like iron. Cast iron, stainless steel, and mild steel parts overlaid with nickel alloy last up to ten times longer than untreated parts and parts coated with common hardfacing alloys. The low melting point (under 2000ºF) enables overlays to be applied with minmal dilution and base metal distortion.

Rankin PMA VERSAlloy® Nickel rods are self-fluxing on conventional base metals. PMA offers the highest purity sintered powder rods, and are never contaminated by fillers, binders or tubes. The easy to use trapezoid-shaped rods are ideal for hard surfacing, maintenance and repair welding for maximum resistance to corrosion, high temperature, and extreme wear.
