For impact loads and moderate abrasion

In impact load situations, it is important that the armored overlay is malleable and capable of being formed. This allows the kinetic energy of striking particles to be absorbed and, ideally, to be released again. VAUTID 40 meets this challenge in full. With its ductile matrix, this alloy offers exceptional protection against shock loadings, yet still contains a sufficient quantity of hard particles to provide moderate protection against abrasion as well.

It can even be machined after tempering, making this alloy particularly well-suited for the production of close-tolerance components. Very good results can also be achieved in metal-on-metal wear applications.

Recommended applications:

  • Components which are subject to both impact and abrasion, in applications where impact stresses are the major consideration, e.g. hammers for crushing plants handling moderately abrasive media.
  • Components which need to be machined after hard-facing.
  • Metal-on-metal wear applications, e.g. guides and rails.
