• TCS-XL

    TCS™-XL was developed specifically for re-application of tool joints initially hardbanded with TCS-Titanium (Ti).

     

    Description

    TCS-XL was developed specifically for re-application of tool joints initially hardbanded with TCS-Titanium (Ti).

    This innovative alloy combines Niobium as a base carbide with a mix of premium alloys that together form an exceptionally durable Chrome alloy matrix. 

    When overlaid on TCS-Ti, the result is excellent wear resistance performance at a more cost-effective approach for repetitive tool joint resurfacing.

    Features/Benefits

    • Unique alloy and microstructure provides enhanced performance 
    • Designed to be applied over TCS™-Ti for optimum performance but can also be applied over itself or TCS-8000
    • Hardness >57/59Rc on single deposit overlay
    • Gas shielded TCS-XL provides very high deposition efficiency > 100%
    • Crack resistant and visually crack free deposits 
    • No spalling of weld material
    • Casing friendly overlay
    • Extremely low coefficient of friction
    • Very high stress abrasion resistance
    • Impact (and wear) resistant
    • Spray transfer deposition for improved weld appeal and application
