Eutectic's BoroTec 600 chromium-free wireClick image to enlarge

Eutectic has introduced what it says is the hardest wire with no hazardous chromium by-products, BoroTec 600 Cr-Free.

The company says the wire can be used in a range of steel components that are subjected to severe abrasion or erosion by mineral particles, sand, rock and gravel. The product is engineered with boron carbides instead of chromium carbides.

The wire offers a deposit efficiency of 90 per cent and provides abrasive and erosion wear resistance that is superior to chormium carbide (60 - 65 HRC) without exposing the welder to harmful hexavalent chromium fumes, claims the company.

It complies with OSHA and NIOSH regulatory standards and is available in 1.2 and 1.6 mm diameters.
