as well as workstring completion tubing (also referred to as hardbanding completion tubing or tubebanding). Its microstructure consists of a hard, but tough tool steel matrix with a high volume of tightly packed micro-constituents. This chemistry ensures a non-cracking hard band with excellent wear resistance in open hole drilling as well as being casing friendly.
