A LABORATORY EVALUATION OF TUNGSTEN CARBIDE INSERTS FOR SNOWPLOW BLADES. FINAL REPORT

Tungsten carbide used in snowplow blades was studied from three manufacturers. The carbides were measured for common industry properties including specific gravity and hardness. In addition, an abrasion resistance was performed. There was no significant difference found in abrasion resistance between the Kenametal and the Valk carbides. The Bucyrus carbides showed improved abrasion resistance, but were outside industry specifications for specific gravity.
