Specialty Powders are used with various Rockwell C hardness ratings to produce hardfacing alloys.  These self-fluxing nickel based alloys can be blended with Tungsten Carbide (WC) to produce effective wear coatings for downhole equipment.  The Drilling Industry has been utilizing AMETEK's Pfinodal® bearing materials to extend drill bit life for more than two decades. The Pfinodal® material is water atomized at our Eighty Four facility and solid state compacted into drill bit parts at our Wallingford, CT facility.  The knowledge we've gained through intimate work in the industry enables us to offer turnkey solutions to industry problems.
