These grades are used in wear applications that require some corrosion resistance. The high chromium content offers the corrosion resistance and the fine carbides dispersed throughout provide the hardness. These grades cannot be welded.
|Applications||Where wear resistance (or high hardness) and minimal corrosion resistance is requires|
|Limitations||Very crack prone and non-weldable|
|Typical Uses||Wear components|
|Corrosion Resistance||Low to fair|
