Features & Benefits
Resist Seizing & Galling: Stellite 6B is resistant to the effects of seizing or galling. In many cases, its low coefficient of friction allows sliding contact with other metals without damage by metal pick-up. Stellite 6B has been used in equipment where no lubricants were used because of the nature of the product being handled.
Erosive Wear Resistance: Parts made of Stellite 6B have a long service life, even under constant erosive conditions. This material has outstanding resistance to cavitation-erosion. The wrought structure results in improved abrasion wear resistance comparable to much harder cast materials.
Excellent Hot Hardness: Stellite 6B retains high hardness, even at red heat. Once cooled back to room temperature, it recovers its full original hardness.
Impact Resistant: The toughness of the wrought Stellite 6B alloy yields Charpy impact test results 4X that of cast Stellite 6.
Corrosion Performance: Stellite 6B has excellent resistance to a variety of corrosive media. While other materials struggle to survive the harsh corrosive media used in industries like food handling or chemical equipment, Stellite 6B thrives.
Workability: Stellite 6B sheets can be formed and/or welded in place to quickly cover high-wear areas with minimal heat input. It can be fabricated to get you the protection where and when you need it most.
Size Range: Kennametal stocks 6B round bar in diameters 0.312”-6.000” in lengths up to 160” and flat bar/sheet in thickness 0.031”-1.000” in lengths up to 96”. Additionally, 6B can be quoted in custom sizes upon request.
