adiwr circleADIWR (Wear Resistant ADI) is a material that enhances the PITRAM effect typical of ADI, i.e. the conversion of unstable austenite into martensite.
A highly wear resistant material is produced, that maintains a good toughness and is very easy to machine before the heat treatment.
ADIWR is an interesting alternative to wear resistant white iron, alloyed or not with Ni and Cr, and to certain tough steels.
