Extreme Abrasion Resistant Chromium Carbide Overlay Plate

Chromeweld 600

CHROMEWELD™ 600 CHROMIUM CARBIDE PLATE

CHROMEWELD™ 600 is the global standard in abrasion resistant chromium carbide plate.  It is a 600 Brinnell chromium carbide plate that is manufactured by JADCO, and is ideal for surfaces requiring high levels of abrasion resistance. CHROMEWELD™ 600  has been proven in the coal mines of Appalachia, the aggregates of North Carolina, and the Gold fields of Africa.

Incredible hardness, unrivaled performance

Precision-manufactured with a mild steel (A36) base plate and hardfaced/overlayed with our proprietary wire, CHROMEWELD™ 600 is a premium grade of chromium carbide plate. Alternative options available for the base plate, including but not limited to: A572 and stainless steel.

CHROMEWELD™ 600 typical hardness ranges from 58-62 HrC based on weld deposit thickness. The surface of plate is a composite of chromium iron carbides in a chromium austenitic matrix. The surface of the plate exhibits numerous hairline cracks which are a natural stress relieving phenomenon that is essential to the performance of the plate and enable it to be formed, bent, and rolled without damage. The surface of plate is a composite of chromium iron carbides in a chromium austenitic matrix. Typical hardness of the CHROMEWELD™ 600 is 58-62 HRC, depending on the thickness of the overlay.

The JADCO process produces a microstructure consisting of fully austenitic matrix filled with primary carbides. This structure provides outstanding abrasion resistance in the most challenging applications.

CHROMEWELD 600 Fabrication Facts

Cutting: Plasma burning, air arc, abrasive saw cutting, or waterjet.
Machining: The overlay surface can be finished by grinding only. EDM, plasma arc cutting, or carbon-arc gouging may produce countersunk holes for bolts. Pre-machined mild steel inserts may be welded into straight holes for additional machining. CHROMEWELD™ 600 cannot be machined by ordinary methods.
Cold Bending: When using a press brake, forming should be perpendicular to the weld pass direction. Plate rolling should be performed in the direction of the overlay beads. Forming CHROMEWELD™ 600 to the outside will cause cross-check cracks to open. This may require post-fabrication weld repair using suitable weld rod/wire.
Welding: CHROMEWELD™ 600 overlay plate can be joined by welding substrate to substrate using 309 weld wire/rod. Liner plates can be plug welded in place by welding the substrate to the base plate. Stud welds can be applied, but it is highly recommended that stainless steel studs be used. All weld seams: plug-weld holes, bolt holes, and all other joints exposed to wear should be protected by a cap weld of one of our JADCO FUSION™ Wires.
