Polymet is excited to showcase its new Vecalloy Product Line at ITSC 2015 in Long Beach. Vecalloy products are all unique patented alloys meticulously engineered to solve your toughest hardfacing problems.

Since Welding is a critical enabling technology that accounts for 59% of the total value of production by all manufacturing, construction, and mining industries, the art and craft of welding is constantly changing and evolving. Even as the industry evolves, though, there is one thing that never changes: the need for basic safety awareness when […]

Polymet is and has always been recognized as a leader in innovation within the industries their wires are used. There are no plans to let this position of leadership slip. Polymet is excited to step into 2015 with some big plans to support innovation and excellence. For starters Polymet has made some big upgrades and developments […]

We are now stocking our Stellite® equivalent material, POLYSTEL, in rod and MIG wire form. POLYSTEL is part of our industrial hardfacing and welding product line and it is Stellite® equivalent in composition but superior in quality and performance. Our core business is small diameter, solid wire which includes many of the POLYSTEL products but they are […]

Polymet Corporation, a global leader and manufacturer of wire for hardfacing, welding and thermal spraying, installed a state-of-the-art tagging and testing machine.  This proprietary machine will play a critical role in Polymet’s quality assurance and will allow for increased speeds for wire tagging. The “Libby II,” as it is called, replaced the previous Libby machine.  […]

Polymet’s industrial line of hardfacing and welding wire is utilized heavily in the valve industry. Hardfacing material is applied to the contact surfaces and moving areas of the valve to provide wear resistance and corrosion resistance. Our wire is used to hardface valves in markets such as nuclear power, oil & gas, chemical, mining, and […]

Polymet was founded in 1967 as a small consulting firm servicing the aerospace industry and quickly grew into a pioneer of the gas turbine hardfacing and welding world. Through a proprietary hot extrusion process, we are able to manufacture very hard alloys with little ductility in small diameter wire form.  Applications in the aerospace industry […]

Hardfacing is a welding process of build-up deposits of alloys to resist corrosion, abrasion, high temperature, or impact.  Hardfacing increases a part’s service life and can thus directly affect machinery efficiency and reduce the amount of equipment that is scrapped.  When addressing wear resistance needs, high-deposit hardness material does not always provide the best overall […]
