Wear Patch

Kenco Wear Patch provides a highly effective solution to abrasive wear problems in many applications. Wear Patch comes in a variety of shapes and sizes that can be installed on virtually any flat metal wear surface or exposed edge, using Mig wire or common electrodes. Wear Patches are hardened to 60-63 Rockwell C for superior wear life. They can easily be cut with a torch to fit irregular shaped areas. Product literature (PDF). Also, see Wear Patch compared to hardfacing (PDF).

Features and Benefits:

  • Installs easily with MIG wire or common electrodes
  • Protects any metal surface subject to high abrasive wear
  • Lasts up to 10 times longer than hardfacing
  • Much less welding; eliminates heat distortion
  • Can be torch cut to fit irregular shapes
  • Hardness in excess of 60 Rockwell "C" (600 Brinell)

FAQ's

How does Wear Patch eliminate heat stress that is frequently caused by hardfacing?
Wear Patch can be applied in less than 10% the time of hardfacing, putting minimal heat into the parent metal. This helps eliminate heat distortion and possible damage to steel integrity. Wear Patch compared to hardfacing (PDF).
