World Class Wear Technology

ClearStream is the clear choice for world class wear technology.  Our clients have long depended on our patented wear technology to prolong the life of Carbon Steel, Chromium Carbide, Complex Carbide, Tungsten Carbide, Stellite, Cobalt, Inconel, and Hastelloy by protecting it against the harmful and costly effects of abrasion, erosion, corrosion and impact.

Our ClearStream Wear division specializes in the supply and fabrication of overlay pipe spools, pipe bends, wear plates, and custom overlay solutions; our Universal Weld Overlays Inc. (UWO) division specializes in weld overlays of pre-fabricated components for service in corrosive and errosive environments.

Our proven expertise in welding robotics and automation ensures production to exacting standards and our patented overlay technology has unlimited applications across industries requiring superior component protection. We are the industry leaders in best industry practices, quality controls and performance technology to deliver top quality results to our clients.

Maintain Uptime. Maximize Protection.

With over 145,000 square feet of manufacturing facilities in 3 locations we have the largest production capacity in North America.  ClearStream develops and fabricates custom designed wear technology that extends component life in even the harshest operating conditions. Developed and engineered by our cutting-edge research and development team, the (nano) complex carbide technology behind our unique compositions results in the optimum level of carbides needed to provide exceptional abrasion resistance for prolonged asset life and increased investment protection.
