We manufacture alloy products equivalent to Stellite 1, Stellite 6, Stellite 12, Stellite 21, & Stellite 190. Rod Our cobalt-based hardfacing rod is available both bare and coated. These Stellite equivalent alloys are used in the most demanding industrial applications in the world. They can be […]

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 […]

Polymet’s hardfacing wires for the lumber industry have been engineered with one purpose in mind: efficiency. Polymet’s 100% dense, solid POLYSTEL product line utilizes the proprietary hot extrusion process to produce continuous spools of wire suitable for automated gas tungsten arc welding and plasma welding processes. This spooled POLYSTEL wire enables the customer to set […]

Polymet begins work on several capital projects aimed at expanding its capacity to roll and draw specialty wire and adding jobs Polymet Corporation, a leading producer of hardfacing wire, welding wire and thermal spray wire, has approved plans and began work to significantly increase its specialty wire rolling and drawing capacity.  Currently Polymet uses very […]

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 […]

The cast and helix are two physical properties that are extremely important when evaluating wire for MIG welding and thermal spraying.  These two properties affect the wire’s feedability, as well as weld accuracy, arc wander, consumable life, and contact current pickup. Polymet prides itself on delivering wire that has excellent cast and helix that always […]

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 […]

Last month we had the pleasure of attending the Farnborough International Air Show in Hampshire, England.  It is the world’s most iconic aviation event and one of the most important exhibition in the aerospace industry.  We were very happy that we had a chance to be there. For those who are not familiar with Farnborough […]
