These alloys exhibit a high hardness and good corrosion resistance. They are often used in wear applications. Most of the grades cannot be welded.
|Representative Alloys||ILLIUM® 6, ILLIUM® 21, (STELLITE®)|
|Applications||Hot or corrosive atmosphere where lubrication is difficult; for resistance to wear, galling, impact, and thermal shock|
|Limitations||Low ductility in many grades|
|Typical Uses||Bushings, sleeves, knives, pump components, valves|
|Weldability||Good to poor, depending on grade|
