Pro's- Great wear, stuff last forever.
Con's- Price, extremely hard, will crack and fall off if used in high impact areas, such as leading edges. Can be difficult to work with.

To line a D11R blade with it cost something like $20,000-$30,000. Can not remember the exact price, needless to say its expensive stuff.

Cool pics, love to see other people's work. Especially when its of the same things I work on every day.

I'm currently building a Komatsu 300 bucket for "Eagle Creek Mining". I know you've heard of them jksweld. And tomorrow I'm going to be fab'n up some Clad strips for the bottom of it. I'll post some pic's tomorrow evening after work. With some nice close ups of the clad it's self.
These patches are easy to work with and as you can see from the pics we only lost three and as far as cost the last time I checked they were under$4.00 apiece. They just put new tires on this loader that cost over $10,000 apiece so if you look at it that way the patches are cheap considering how long the last. I would like to see your pics. We have been talking about getting pices formed but haven't done it yet.

Someone asked the purpose....the previous answer is it in a nutshell, but the pic of the excavator bucket shows how proper wear prevention really works. It traps dirt in between, and the dirt then acts as a barrier reducing wear on the softer base metals. (Dirt on dirt will never wear the metal!)

I'd love to find a source for these in my area.....and I'm wondering, what size are the actual blocks that you're using? (It's hard to get a good guess with nothing really good for scale in the pics.)
I will have to mesure them to be sure but they are about 3 1/2" 2 1/2" about 3/8" to a 1/2" thick

Here is a link to some pics of the clad strips. Their is a pic of some rolled ones for another project. It comes in plate or strip form. Don't have any pics of clad liners, haven't done one in a while.

I left these images in high resolution.

Cost. But mainly due to the fact that you can put it on like I did and it last almost as long.

Dirt packs in between the strips, and thus that part never wears out. And the strips themselves last nearly as long as a full plate would. You have dirt wearing dirt.

I added a few more images to that album showing how it works. You can see the before, and after on a John Deere bucket I repaired a few years ago. And also some clad strips I put in a 992G bucket.

Default Hensley

Hensley makes a product called Laminite; a bi-metal wear part similar to what Digr has shown. I have applied a lot of it; and it LASTS!! Available as bars, blocks, and round buttons.
