Agriculture & Food

At Welding Alloys, we understand the high costs associated with downtime in the agriculture industry. Including the limited time windows, within which to perform certain activities and the associated risks and pressures this creates. To assist the industry, we offer an extensive range of welding products, services, and equipment to increase wear resistance and prolong the service life of parts within the agricultural industry. Speak to us today to discover how we can improve the lifespan of ploughshares, ripper teeth, oil presses, transportation screws, and other components that are subject to wear.


Welding Alloys brings decades of experience in wear protection and solutions for equipment used in the cement industry. Our teams of technical engineers provide wear protection services and solutions either on-site/ in situ or in our workshops across the world. We offer a range of solutions for increased resistance to all types of wear phenomena, including abrasion, erosion, and impact.


Hydropower plants and equipment are known to be subject to high cavitation, erosion, and vibration wear. These types of wear can occur on the scroll casing, guide vanes, and runner blades.

Mining, Quarries & Earthmoving

As producers of raw mineral products used across all sectors, mining remains the backbone of many economies worldwide. Extracting and refining minerals and metals from the depths of the earth can take place in some of the most remote and barren environments around the globe.

Oil & Gas / Petrochemical

The oil, gas, and petrochemical industries remain critical to our global transportation systems, through the production of lubricants, fuels and other related products needed for daily hauling.


All types of power plants require regular maintenance to operate efficiently and produce cost-effective electricity, whether thermal, hydro-electric, or those burning waste materials.  Maintenance requirements can vary significantly depending on the type of power plant, the specific conditions, and environment.

Pulp & Paper

The pulp and paper industry faces various wear challenges throughout the different stages of the production process, including wear from abrasion, erosion, corrosion, pressure and temperature. Welding Alloys have technical experts across the globe that have in-depth knowledge of these different wear phenomena and can provide tailored solutions dedicated to extending the service life of each part and reducing total cost of ownership for the customer.


We understand that the transportation backbone of many countries around the globe is based on their ability to maintain and operate an efficient and economically viable railway system. Safety and time are paramount in all rail operations and the replacement of tracks and crossings is costly and time consuming. Our Welding Alloys materials and solutions are designed and developed to address specific customer needs, based on data obtained from the industry for more than 50 years.

Recycling & Waste

Sustainability and the need for a greater circular economy has placed more importance on recycling and waste management. In both recycling processing facilities and waste-from-energy plants, wear occurs on various components and equipment. The wear phenomena within the recycling and waste industries mimics that of other industries and creates similar challenges when aiming to reduce plant downtime.

Steel Making

For over 50 years, Welding Alloys have been active within the steel industry by providing solutions for complex wear issues that occur. We offer solutions to combat a wide range of wear challenges, from normal sliding abrasion in chutes, to high levels of continuous impact and metal-to-metal wear at extreme temperatures.


At Welding Alloys, we offer a wide range of products, services, and equipment to solve wear problems that occur in the sugar industry. Our industry knowledge and expertise mean we can increase the lifespan and productivity of sugar rolls, crop dividers, shredders, knives, and chopper rollers used in the sugar cane industry, anywhere in the world.
