Borocarbide overlay wear plate

The latest addition to a broad range of overlay products for high abrasion conditions, Duroxite 300 is presented as a competitive alternative to traditional tungsten carbide alternatives. The overlay material used for Duroxite 300 contains a high volume of an ultra-fine complex borocarbide phase. Grain size is down to 500 nanometers, which makes the borocarbides approximately 200 times finer than traditional chromium carbides.
