Our Integra™ division specialises in providing welding services in-house or in-situ using our own advanced welding consumables and state-of-the-art machines for the hardfacing and cladding of components worn in service. Our knowledge of service conditions of worn components enables us to recommend the appropriate welding method and welding consumables to provide exceptional component service life, always exceeding the original performance.
Welding Alloys has 25 Integra™ Service Centres that operate worldwide and offer extensive expertise across a number of industries. We are the experts and benefit from a wealth of knowledge and experience that has developed throughout the years, enabling us to provide the best possible solutions to our customers.
In partnership with our customers and according to their specifications, Welding Alloys Integra™ offers a full range of services and solutions:
- Assessment and analysis of parts and their working conditions; procedure's development, applications and measures control ensuring high standard quality throughout the job
- Supply of our own designed, long lasting and reliable hardfaced components
- Application of highly efficient cladding or hardfacing procedures with the use of simultaneously operating, fully automated, welding heads
To fulfil the need of many industries looking for specialised hardfacing and cladding services, the Welding Alloys Group created a worldwide network of Integra™ Service Centres strategically located to enable fast on site intervention and to offer local services of international quality and standards.
Composite wear plates
More resistant than quenched and tempered abrasion-resistant steel plates.
Welding Alloys’ range of wear plates comprise a base plate of construction steel and a wear resistant coating applied by arc welding. Produced using specially developed Welding Alloys cored wires, they are distinguished by their:
- Homogeneity of the deposit
- Regular appearance
- High quality consistency – guaranteed by the use of advanced automatic welding equipment designed and manufactured in our workshops
- Functionality and Adaptability
Hardplate™, Hardlite™ and Tuffplate™ are available in standard dimensions or made to measure,
in the widest available range of thickness. Their dense metallurgical structure offers exceptional
resistance to abrasive wear.
Heavy duty composite wear plates

Welding Alloys SprayClad® ‘Best in Class’ for Boiler Protection
Designed to withstand prolonged exposure to corrosive gases, salts, chlorides and abrasive particles. These substances corrode and erode the boiler and heater tubes during operation. SprayClad can be customised to help solve the challenges faced by many of our customers, and contribute significantly to reduce thinning of tube walls, boiler downtime and the cost of in-situ tube cladding.
SprayClad has been designed to withstand prolonged exposure to corrosive gases, salts, chlorides and abrasive particles at elevated operating temperatures, in applications for Waste to Energy, Biomass and Fossil fuel power generation boilers. This process is suitable for black liquor boilers, fume extraction hoods and ducts in the steel industry, and can be tailored for a large range of other applications, including abrasion, corrosion and erosion at room temperature.
*SprayClad is unavailable in the USA
A proven technology to substantially increase the service life of heavily wearing critical parts. 3D-Carb™ bulk deposits outlast conventional welded protection and castings in resisting against combined wear.
