SelectWear WearPlex-MCO

Hardsurfacing / Metal Cored / Self Shielded


  • Designed to produce an extremely high concentration of uniformily distributed primary chromium carbides, along with secondary complex carbides in an austenitic matrix
  • An enhanced version of our SelectWear MultiPlex-MCO resulting in superior weldability and increased carbide generation in single layer applications, greatly improving wear resistance
  • WearPlex-MCO suitable for one, two, and three layer hardfacing on hardface plate and ID pipe applications
  • The high concentration of small primary carbides greatly improves wear resistance and toughness over conventional chromium carbide alloys
  • Applications include: ID pipe and elbow cladding, wear plates
  • Moderate impact resistance
