Wear Protection


Weather isn't the only thing that can unexpectedly change your plans for a day of road milling. Wear can, too. If your equipment goes down due to wear damage, you're looking at lost production and repair costs. Kennametal's KenCast™ wear parts protect your equipment to prevent unplanned downtime, rain or shine.

KenCast™ Wear Parts

KenCast is our patented, unique tungsten carbide wear product that prevents premature wear damage to your equipment, so your equipment investment lasts longer.

We take tungsten carbide particles and metallurgically bond them to air-hardened steel. The result is a composite that's extremely resistant to abrasion and impact.

Prior to first use, the outer surface of the KenCast part looks smooth because the carbide particles are encased. During use, the outer layer of steel gradually wears to expose the tungsten carbide particles. It’s these particles that take the punishment of your abrasive applications so your equipment doesn't.

It’s common for customers to see significantly longer tool life on parts protected by KenCast, which is available in standard sizes or custom-fit to your equipment. KenCast is easy to weld and highly durable in challenging road milling conditions.

Use KenCast on:

  • kicker plates
  • drag shoes
  • quick-change block base protectors
  • pedestal protectors
  • side cleaner bars
