• TCS Titanium

    The most durable, crack free, casing friendly hardband available worldwide.  New testing that simulates today's challenging drilling environments proves that TCS™Titanium out performs all other crack free hardband materials in durability and casing wear protection.  Like all TCS™ Products, TCS™Titanium exhibits unlimited field reapplication capabilities over other TCS™ products and select competitive products without removal of existing hardbanding.

    Tuboscope TCS Titanium is a martensitic chrome-titanium carbide alloy with molybdenum. This popular hardbanding choice features high-stress abrasion resistance and the ability to resist cracking and spalling.

    TCS Titanium is manufactured as a self-shielding, flux-cored, 2.4mm open arc welding wire.
