Hardbanding

Hardbanding material consists of granular tungsten carbide that is fed automatically into the molten weld puddle to obtain uniform distribution of the tungsten carbide particles.

The resulting deposit of hardbanding is flush to 1/32” above the OD of the collar. Hardbanding on the box end (endless for the special purpose of protecting slip and elevator recesses) is not recommended because the hardbanding covers the normal slip area.
