The industry's Leading Casing-Friendly Hardbanding


Arnco Technology has led the hardbanding industry since pioneering the use of casing-friendly hardbanding two decades ago. We pride ourselves on protecting your drill string and casing assets by developing leading edge solutions for ultimate wear-protection.

Staying ahead of the industry’s needs continues the drive to develop hardbanding alloys well suited for any drilling environment – an understanding gained from years of field experience in formations world-wide.

150XT Characteristics

  • Extremely casing-friendly
  • Exceptional durability
  • Non-Cracking (single and double layer)
  • No spalling, chipping, or flaking
  • Re-application without previous layer removal
  • Highly H2S resistant


The 150XT was developed to be a crack-free, competitively priced hardbanding product with extremely low casing wear and high wear resistance for tool-joint protection.

After years of continued success with Arnco’s legacy 100XT, an objective was established to develop a hardbanding material with significantly improved durability while still maintaining the industry's lowest casing wear rate. As a result, the 150XT emerged exhibiting much improved wear resistance (3.5x better than 100XT), as well as being Arnco’s most casing-friendly product to date.  For our customers seeking a balance between price, casing-friendliness and durability, 150XT offers the best hardbanding solution available.

The 150XT is easy to apply, following standard procedures for Arnco products. It produces a smooth, crack-free deposit with very little spatter requiring minimal post weld clean-up. The 150XT can be  applied over itself an unlimited number of times without removal of the previous layer. It may also be applied over Arnco's 100XT and 350XT, as well as most competitive products, using proper procedures and an evaluation of the previous application.
