Performance Alloys


Since 1984, PERFORMANCE ALLOYS has been the premier producer of hardfacing rods, electrodes and wire in North America. Our products have been field tested and proven in:

  • Agriculture

  • Mining

  • Drilling

  • Excavating

  • Dredging

  • Earth Moving


Our HARDERN-HELLE brand electrodes and wire have passed the test in lava fields of Hawaii, sugar mills in the Phillipines, copper mines in Peru and drilling rigs all over the United States.


Time and time again HARDERN-HELLE CRC2 has beaten competitors not only in price but in the all important arena of wear resistance to extreme abrasion. Hardfacing electrodes and wire is the only thing we do and we do it better than anyone else.


We can show your company how to reduce costs and increase the life of parts subject to extreme wear.
