CDP® LC8 wearplates

World’s first laser wearplate
  • Ultimate wear resistance against erosion and abrasion using 60% Tungsten Carbide
  • Good formability and wide range of installation possibilities
  • Uniform distribution of carbides, low dilution and low carbide dissolution
  • Flexible sizes and thicknesses
CastoDur Diamond Plate® LC8 is a thin steel plate coated with a highly wear-resistant layer. The very high density of ultra-hard Tungsten Carbide phases homogeneously distributed into a nickel-based matrix offer an extreme resistance up to 10 times better than standard heat treated (HT) wearplates. Consequently, similar or even superior life-times over traditional thick and heavy wearplates. CastoDur Diamond Plate® LC8 can be handled manually by operators. It is ideal where lifting devices cannot be installed, in particular inside restricted areas. Due to its low temperature, focused beam, laser technology has proved to be extremely effective for protecting parts exposed to high wear. Advantages over hardfacing techniques, such as welding, include:
  • As dilution is minimal and can be perfectly controlled, the properties of high-quality coating materials are not appreciably affected during application.
  • The tungsten carbides that provide protection against abrasion and erosion do not dissolve. The carbides are perfectly embedded in the matrix, plus the layers exhibit increased impact resistance.
  • Of all coating processes, the LaserClad technology has the lowest influence on base material properties.
  • The uniform coating thickness allows for small tolerances and ensures that less turbulences are generated on the coated surface.
