Weld overlay is ideal for products that will be exposed to hostile environments- Pipes, valves, forged fittings and other specialist fabrications etc.
Weld overlay is not only for connection parts, the purpose is to increase the wear resistance of working surface, heat resistance, corrosion resistance and other performance.
Weld overlay is an importance branch in welding field. It has a wildly application in the field of mining industry, oil petrochemical industry, agricultural machinery.
