Stoody HB-56 is a casing-friendly, general purpose hardbanding alloy that offers a good balance of impact and abrasion resistance in a high hardness (56 to 60 HRC). Deposits made using Stoody HB-56 are crack-free when applied over new or properly rebuilt tool joints using appropriate preheating.
Stoody HB-62 is a specially formulated hardbanding wire that produces a uniform distribution of small primary carbides in a martensitic matrix. This yields superior crack-free deposits that are both resistant to plastic deformation and have excellent impact resistance (62 HRC). With a low coefficient of friction, Stoody HB-62 is the first choice for casing friendly hardbanding.
Stoody HB-Ti offers the best combination of properties for open hole and cased hole drilling. The deposit has a fine dispersion of titanium carbides in a martensitic matrix, providing the best combination of erosive and metal-to-metal wear resistance (57 to 61 HRC). Stoody HB-Ti wire is designed for open arc welding and requires no gas shielding. This is particularly important when repairs are done in the field, where access to shielding gases may be impractical.
