Conforma Clad offers severe wear solutions that are unmatched in providing protection against abrasion, erosion, corrosion or any combination of the three. We believe there is no other coating that can match our level of protection against multiple modes of wear. Our wear solutions are based on materials technology innovations and proprietary know-how developed over the last 30 years.

What makes our process superior to other wear protection methods?

  • Excellent abrasion, erosion and corrosion resistance
  • Longer lasting and more durable than sprays, chrome carbide weld overlays and other alternative wear protection
  • Cladding will not detach from equipment because of the strong metallurgical bond (70,000 psi)
  • Cladding can be applied to complex geometries and inside diameters, and to areas unreachable by other methods (areas out of the line-of-sight)
  • Cladding has no interconnected porosity, offering superior corrosion and impact resistance
  • A thin layer of our brazed tungsten carbide cladding gives the same wear resistance as a much thicker application of weld overlay, allowing cladding applications in areas typically not protected because of weight restrictions
  • Cladding properties are consistent throughout, creating uniform wear-rates and continuous heat transfer

Many wear protection methods provide adequate defense against either erosion, abrasion, or corrosion, but only Conforma Clad brazed tungsten carbide cladding resists wear in severe environments where a combination of two or more modes of wear are present.
