For impact and abrasion resistance, Hobart Brothers introduces its McKay VertiWear 600 and VertiWear AP gas-shielded-flux cored hard surfacing wires. Designed for surfacing mild- and low-alloy steel components that are prone to moderate abrasive wear and medium to high-impact, VertiWear 600 deposits a multi-purpose martensitic steel alloy. VertiWear AP is best suited to buildup or overlay on austenitic manganese steel or for joining austenitic manganese steel to manganese, carbon or low-alloy steel. Both wires can be used to advantage for out-of-position welding. In addition to lengthening the life of the parts and preventing excessive wear, these wires reduce downtime due to breakage and reduce the need to maintain an additional parts inventory. Costing 20% to 30% less than replacing worn parts, hardfacing with these wires serves as a solid alternative to buying new equipment. VertiWear 600 is suitable for repairing dragline chain, mill guides and coupling boxes, whereas VertiWear AP is best suited for bucket teeth and lips, crusher jaws and cones, and dragline buckets.
