New ‘Coolbanding’ ® procedure protects Internal Plastic Coating

Skye hardbanding equipment makes Coolbanding ® simple

Postle Industries, manufacturers of Duraband NC® hardbanding material, have developed the only welding process proven to drastically lower heat input during hardbanding reapplication, as a method of protecting the Internal Plastic Coating, while maintaining the integrity of the tool joint.

The coolbanding procedure is only possible with a reapplication of Duraband NC over worn Duraband NC, and it requires welding equipment with precise automatic step-over, as found on our ‘Skye’ range of hardbanding equipment.
