A steel part moving through soil presents a uniquely challenging wear problem, especially in abrasive, sandy soils. This is where Lund Coating Technologies, Inc. excels. Over many years Lund has perfected its proprietary WEAR-TUFF ® abrasion resistant coating. When a major agricultural equipment company went looking for a way to extend the life of its tillage sweeps, Lund Coating Technologies developed a process to protect both the leading edge as well as high wear areas on the shank. Now Lund applies its WEAR-TUFF coating to these sweeps, as well as tillage disks, spiders and many other soil engaging parts provided by other manufacturers. In practice, with the WEAR-TUFF coating, these parts can last as much as three times longer or more than non-treated parts.
