Wear parts

Material Selection for Wear Resistance Applications:

CS – GET is a wear alloy developed for toughness & wear resistance applications such as ground engagement tools (G.E.T.’s) and forestry harvester head teeth.

It is readily weldable in the fully hardened and tempered condition, this makes it especially valuable in the field where welding and hardfacing can be done with minimum preparation.

Typical Applications;

Tooth tips for ground engaging machinery, grinding and cutting hammers.

Typical mechanical properties;

Hardness only grade, can range from 460 Hb on larger section tips to 500 Hb on smaller section tips.

Impact properties; at ambient temperature (20°C) 21 Joules, at zero centigrade 14 Joules.

Heat treatment;

Supplied in the quenched and tempered condition.


Cosmetic weld repairs can be done in the fully heat treated condition;

Pre heat to 200C minimum, GTAW using E8018 B2 wire, allow to cool slowly.

Wear Resistant Castings

Wear is a complex field and there are numerous types of wear. Different types (and combinations) of wear mechanisms requires different approaches to the material selection and design.

Part I. The Metallurgy of: “Alloy Selection for Elevated Temperature Application”

Introduction This is a complex subject in part due to the time dependant mechanical behaviour of metals under load at elevated temperature. At room temperature, we understand that a part is failing once it is past it’s yield point – plastic deformation is occurring. The part is completely destroyed once…

Part II. The Metallurgy of: “Alloy Selection for Elevated Temperature Application”

Malabou cast special alloys that allow for castings to be used at elevated temperature’s, in some cases in excess of 1000°C. These heat resistant casting alloys consist of predominantly of combinations of nickel, chromium and iron together with small percentages of other elements. Castings made of these high temperature alloys…
