Trimay® Wear Plate TWP57 Chromium-based Flux Cored Weld Wire & Electrode
Categories: Metal; Ferrous Metal; Alloy Steel

Material Notes: Description: TWP57 is a chromium-based flux cored wire electrode used to protect equipment and parts from heavy wear and mild-to-moderate direct impact. TWP57 has a compatible compostion that allows it to be applied on a wide array of materials and it maintains good Rockwell Hardness (HRc) and wear ability at elevated temperatures.

Key Performance Characteristics: Heavy abrasion and mild/moderate impact resistance, Compatible composition for welding, Hardness increase on underlying layer(s), Good hardness at elevated temperatures

Applications: TWP57 can be overlain on carbon steel, manganese base materials and mild or alloy steels. The maximum recomended deposit thickness of TWP56 is 2 - 3 layers, or 1/4” (6.35mm). TWP57 is used to cover exposed bolts and seams for installation of T156 wear plate and parts, as well as for small area lining of heavy wearing parts and equipment such as the front lip ‘bullnose’ of asphalt screeds.
