STELLITE alloy-like wear resistance and HASTELLOY alloy-like corrosion resistance in a single, highly weldable material, that is ULTIMET!
ULTIMET® alloy (UNS R31233) provides a unique blend of properties. From a wear standpoint, it behaves like the STELLITE® alloys with lower carbon contents. From a corrosion standpoint, it possesses many of the attributes of the C-type and G-type HASTELLOY® materials, in particular outstanding resistance to chloride-induced pitting and crevice corrosion.
Its mechanical and welding characteristics are much closer to those of the HASTELLOY® alloys than those of the STELLITE® alloys, whose low ductilities can be problematic.
While ULTIMET® alloy has been used successfully in the form of wrought products, its largest applications have involved weld overlays, made with solid wire consumables and arcwelding processes such as GMAW (MIG) and GTAW (TIG).
XUNSHI could supply ULTIMET in forms of rod, round bar and forging pieces. We are working on ULTIMET wire and strip products. Please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for your requirements.
