Why Choose Ferobide
Ferobide is durable enough to get the job done
Ferobide combines hard wearing performance with the ease and reliability of a weldable metal
Ferobide is built to withstand the toughest conditions
No matter what soil conditions you work in, Ferobide stays strong against even the most severe abrasive conditions. Ferobide has been proven in the field as being an abrasion-resistant composite of choice that can help improve the service life of parts and equipment.
- Thanks to Ferobide’s hardness, wear is minimised and life is increased.
- Ferobide’s performance isn’t just at surface level. Hardness and durability run all the way through Ferobide wear parts.
- Whatever you need Ferobide for, you’ll find a range of dimensions to suit your application.
Quality and Testing
You can trust that all Ferobide parts are manufactured to high quality standards and every production batch is thoroughly checked by a team of Quality Inspectors and tested for dimensional accuracy and hardness levels. Further, samples from each batch undergo abrasive wear ASTM G65 testing to ensure consistent wear resistance.
We also use on-site laboratory equipment to ensure that all Ferobide components have the necessary micro-structures needed to cope in the environments that they are used in.
Ferobide has more than six successful years in the field to prove real-life performance and long-term material reproducibility. Every batch of Ferobide is tested in our technical centre to maintain highest quality standards. Regular mechanical testing includes various wear testing methods.
Frequenly Asked Questions
It is very easy and quick to weld Ferobide.
When welding Ferobide, keep heat input to a minimum, and use standard MIG / MMA methods. Clamp Ferobide in place, otherwise use a single tack per tile. To guarantee the best results, please see our quick welding instructions here..
Welding gives best results for users. However, if large demand requires, Ferobide can be supplied stud-welded for screw installation. Please consult Tenmat direct for more support.
Ferobide can be used on a wide range of different machines and ground-engaging tools.
It is ideal to combat sliding wear, to prevent thinning or “washing” and is well suited for situations where brazing is not an option and hardfacing is too slow. Ferobide is typically used on seed drills, subsoilers, cultivators, ploughs, muck spreaders, root harvesters, sugar cane harvesters, buckets, mowers, augers, and scrapers.
One ideal placement is behind a brazed carbide edge, however if Ferobide is placed anywhere with sliding wear or in areas that avoid the impact of leading edges, results have demonstrated the effectiveness of Ferobide.
Please see below for examples.
New developments in Ferobide have increased the impact resistance for leading edges however please avoid using standard Ferobide tiles on leading edges and points where the Ferobide is subject to heavy direct impact. Ferobide has been specially developed for excellent sliding wear performance and should only be used on leading edges with minimal impact.
Where welding is the only option for Ferobide, please enquire directly about our leading-edge solutions.
Ferobide is not to be used in above ground high speed applications, e.g. toppers, hedge flails, etc.
Ferobide is the most durable welded material readily available on the market and has upto 10x performance versus hardfacing, and up to 6x performance versus chocky blocks. Brazed pure tungsten has a slightly better wear resistance than Ferobide and while Ferobide is comparable to brazed carbide, Ferobide is slightly less durable. Brazed carbide is the best option for leading edges.
When used for the correct applications, Ferobide users can achieve a much greater working life and performance from wearing metal parts. As well as increased service life, Ferobide also helps to reduce downtime and save time & money on-farm.
See Ferobide case studies below for further details.
