Cold crucible

Special spherical cast Tungsten Carbide.

Produced by Technogenla since 1986 using an unique, innovative and patented process, known as “the cold crucible”. Spherotene are obtained by spraying a liquid phase of Tungsten Carbide.

Spherotene’s main feature is its very fine metallurgical structure known as
“tangled nedles”

Spherotene comes as spheres with an extreme hardness 3000 HV ± 500 NY.

Absence of oxydation of Spherotene makes the derived products highly weldable.

The particles give the deposits produced by Technogenia a much improved resistance to shocks, compared to deposits made up of crushed particles.
