This paper presents the use of computed tomography for the evaluation of hardfacing. The method used in this research is hardfacing by tungsten inert gas using alloy wires of wear resistant layers. This paper discusses the latest materials used for hardfacing and their application. It characterizes the defects of obtained hardfacing and impact of the type of wire on the concentration of defects. It further, the basic mechanical properties of coatings were determined. The results are subjected to qualitative and quantitative analysis. The smallest average percentage of defects in relation to the overall surface is observed for the hardfacing EL-600 HB, which amounts to 1.5%. The highest average percentage of defects in relation to the overall surface is observed for the hardfacing EL-500 HB, which amounts to 7.2%. The chemical composition of hardfacing has been presented.
