  • Tungsten Carbide Coating

    Ventura & Associates have introduced Thermal sprayed Tungsten-Carbide Coating for roll tooling, in the tube, pipe and roll form industries.

    • A newly designed and upgraded alternative to repetitive roll reconditioning.
    • The Thermal spray process improves the stability and repeatability of roll use while enhancing mill up-time by keeping roll tooling running longer and more reliably.
    • The upgraded feature of the thermal spray technology is the ability to apply coatings on rolls with significantly less heating of the part.
    • As a result, the Tungsten-Carbide coating can be applied to a fully heat-treated, completely machined roll without the risk of distortion, common in many high-temperature coating processes.
    • Typical coatings include Tungsten and Chromium Carbides, Mettalic alloys and Ceramics, such as Chromium Oxide or Aluminum Oxide.
