Lincoln Electric, Cleveland, has been granted an exclusive worldwide license to The NanoSteel® Co.’s proprietary steel coatings technology for weld overlay and thermal spray applications.
“These unique products provide a level of hardness and abrasion resistance that is superior to chrome carbides and more economical than tungsten carbides,” said Tom Matthews, senior vice president of technology and R&D for Lincoln Electric.
NanoSteel, based in Providence, R.I., develops iron-based alloys in various forms. The company will continue to develop and market its engineered powders and automotive sheet steel portfolio outside this agreement.
