VANCAR weld deposits contain vanadium carbides, with a wear resistance similar to that of tungsten carbide but with superior impact resistance. A unique feature of this alloy is that the vanadium carbides dissolve and reform in the weld deposit creating an even distribution.
- Vanadium carbides dissolve and reform in the weld deposit resulting in even distribution
- Exhibits wear resistance close to that of tungsten carbine but with superior impact resistance
