Ni Resist Alloys

Ni-Resist or Ni Resist alloy grades are austenitic gray cast iron casting grades that provide good hardness, dampening, and some corrosion resistance. These grades are very brittle and cannot be welded. See main ni-resits properties below, or check our Alloy Selector for specific Ni-Resist alloys properties, chemical composition, mechanical properties, and processability information.

Ni Resist Alloy Properties
Representative Alloys Type 1, Type 1b, Type 2, Type 2b, Type 3, Type 4, Type 5, Type 6
Applications Where a combination of corrosion resistance and wear/erosion resistance is needed
Limitations Non-weldable, brittle alloy
Typical Uses Slurry pumping applications, Cylinder liners, pistons, bearings, glands
Machinability Good
Weldability Non-weldable
Corrosion Resistance Good in mild acids/alkalies, sea water but fair less than stainless steels
