300XT Characteristics

  • Arnco’s original maximum tool joint protection alloy
  • Very Casing-friendly
  • Re-application over itself
  • Cracking-type product
  • Considered the industry’s longest lasting hardbanding


300XT™ is long considered the industry’s most wear resistant hardbanding, and is a favored choice by many international operators and drilling contractors for drill pipe and casing protection.  300XT is known by the industry to consistently outlast the competition in lab and field tests. It produces minimum casing wear and maintains significantly more open-hole wear resistance versus competitive casing friendly products - qualities needed to protect the drill pipe tool joints from rapid wear found in highly abrasive drilling conditions.

For customers seeking the durability of the 300XT™ with improved ease of application and the ability to re-apply over competitive materials, the 350XT™ should be considered.
