BodyClad® coatings at a glance

  • Can coat complex component shapes
  • Individual coating solutions possible
  • Possible to coat only specified areas
  • Components can be coated inside and outside
  • Coating edge areas is possible
  • The matrix hardnesses and carbide content are individually adjustable to optimize wear resistance depending on the level of wear it will be subject to
  • Thick coatings provide very good corrosion resistance even at high temperature applications
  • Smooth layers minimise mechanical reworking
  • Suitable for coating new parts as well as for recontouring damaged surfaces
  • Coat thicknesses from a few tenths of a millimetre to several millimetres are possible
  • Very high coating adhesion thanks to diffusion bonding

Overview of the coating systems:

Powder coatings: Coat thicknesses up to 10 mm. Carbide content up to 60% of the weight
Slurry coatings: Coat thicknesses up to 0.5 mm. Carbide content up to 60% of the weight
Tape coatings:  Coat thicknesses up to 3 mm. Carbide content up to 80% of the weight
Button tape coatings:   Coat thicknesses up to 10 mm. Carbide content up to 90% of the weight
Hardmetal Brazing: Protection of surface by e.g. Carbide with taylormade geometries
Hardmetal glueing and soldering: Low temperative joing of e.g.Tangste Carbide with stress reduction

The coatings can be applied in different ways depending on the brazing process. The application is analyzed in detail, the appropriate coating is selected, and the coating process is determined according to the particular stress conditions.

Tapes for the production of coatings with application soldering/brazing technology


The coating produced during deposit soldering can take on various functions, which is why it is also called a functional coating. For example, hard material particles that have been introduced into the solder can be firmly soldered onto the component surface. In this way they take on a wear protection or gripping function. By soldering and reworking suitable materials as a tape into the wear areas, worn components such as turbine blades or molds can also be reconstructed, for example. Since the coatings are very dense and crack-free, they are also ideal for corrosion protection even at high temperatures. The deposit-brazed coatings are relatively smooth and – in contrast to deposit welding – often do not need to be reworked or ground.

New parts, reconditioning and repair

The highest demands on the surfaces exist e.g. in the use of motors or pumps, in maritime applications, the processing of paper, tobacco, rocks, earth or chemicals containing granules. Constantly increasing machine outputs demand ever higher demands on the mechanical strength, impact resistance and thus wear resistance of the base materials. The types of steel and ceramics currently available and used on the market are reaching their limits. In addition, cleaning processes, e.g. on tools, can be recorded as another potential cause of wear. Depending on the cleaning method, aggressive solvents can attack the base material on the one hand and blasting media can cause abrasive wear on the other.
