Stellite alloys are a group of cobalt-chromium 'super-alloys' consisting of complex carbides in an alloy matrix predominantly designed for high wear resistance and superior chemical and corrosion performance in hostile environments. The combination of Cobalt and Chromium also results in an extremely high melting point making them perfect for a range of intriguing applications from extreme cutting tools to hot section alloy coatings in gas turbines. They may also contain molybdenum or tungsten and a small amount of carbon to offer even greater performance for specific applications.
Stellite alloys are non-magnetic and typically associated with high corrosion resistance and as with many alloys, they are adaptable and can be refined for a range of specific applications. Due to their incredibly hard material properties, Stellite alloys are inherently difficult and often expensive to machine therefore some very precise casting and grinding machining methods are often employed.
