MARBAIN® BASE MATERIAL
Our patented MARBAIN® base material used for Fisher Barton’s blade and wear component production delivers a variety of performance advantages over the conventional material it’s used to replace, including exceptional hardness and durability – all at lower cost.
The MARBAIN advantage is a result of a controlled, proprietary heat treating process that creates ultra-hard properties without the brittleness associated with typical high Rockwell “C” hardness levels. It’s an ideal for high wear applications such as agricultural weldments, disc mower components and many others.
FluxFuse® Coating Process
A Fisher Barton proprietary process, FluxFuse minimizes distortion and warping of components found in typical open air fusing, while providing consistent, uniform fusing conditions for adhering thermal spray wear coatings to the component base material.
Superior fusing of a wear coating results in a much stronger coating bond and, ultimately, increased wear component performance and durability. Combining MARBAIN with FluxFuse combines the best of the materials and coatings worlds, offering a world of new opportunities for longer life and improved performance.
