A small word that describes a big problem. Wear translates to expensive equipment repair and replacement costs and can cause significant downtime. KenCast helps equipment last longer, whether you’re working above ground or underground, on the road or in the pit, crushing rock or pushing snow. With KenCast protection, you can avoid costly repairs and downtime.
Lasting up to 6 x longer than standard wear solutions, KenCast is tungsten carbide particles that have been metallurgically bonded to air-hardened steel. The result? A tough, durable, and extremely wear-resistant material — thanks to the combination of steel and carbide.
Carbide granules give KenCast exceptionally long-lasting protection. Various sized tungsten carbide particles are blended to create the right combination of carbide protection for a particular application.
