Cobalt Alloy Balls
Alloy #1 is a non-ferrous materials. This alloy works best when faced with abrasion, high heat and/or corrosion. Balls made from this cobalt alloy also maintain unique anti-galling properties. Alloy #1 is similar to Stoody® 1.
Alloy #2 is a high carbon, chromium, tungsten cobalt-based alloy. This alloy is non-machinable. These balls are typically used in applications for combating the most extreme wear and abrasion. Alloy #2 is similar to Stoody® 2.
Alloy #3 is a high carbon, chromium, tungsten cobalt-base alloy designed to be non-magnetic in the as-cast and stress relieved state. Balls made from this alloy show improved wear and corrosion resistance but less impact and thermal shock resistant than Alloy #1. Alloy #3 is similar to Stoody® 3.
Alloy #6 is a non-ferrous material. This alloy works best when faced with abrasion, high heat and/or corrosion; it also maintains anti-galling properties that are unique to this type of alloy. Balls made from this alloy have a very high impact resistance and equally matched abrasion resistance. Alloy #6 is similar to Stoody® 6.
Alloy #12 is a non-ferrous materials. This alloy works best when faced with abrasion, high heat and/or corrosion. Balls made from this cobalt alloy also maintain unique anti-galling properties. Alloy #12 is similar to Stoody® 12.
Alloy #19 is a cobalt base centrifugally cast alloy that shares a composition between Alloy #3 and Alloy #12. The composition is also similar to Alloy #1 in hardness. This alloy can be certified to meet mill spec requirements. Alloy #19 is similar to Stoody® 19.
Alloy #21 is a high alloy based material. This alloy works best when faced with slight to severe abrasion, along with heavy to moderate impact. Alloy #21 is similar to Stoody® 21.
Alloy #41 is a nickel-chromium-boron alloy. This prominent cobalt alloy substitute has recently become an industry leader where cobalt base alloys would be undesirable, typically in radioactive environments. Alloy #41 is comparable to Alloy #6 in wear resistance, although it may be limited in some corrosive environments. Alloy #41 is similar to Stoody® 41.
Alloy #41 can be certified to meet U.S. Navy nuclear specifications.
Alloy #45 is similar to the nuclear Alloy #41 except it has a higher chromium-boron content. Designed for nuclear applications, its durability and wear resistant properties have allowed it to make an entrance into many commercial and industrial environments. Alloy #45 is similar to Stoody® 45.
Alloy #45 can be certified to meet U.S. Navy nuclear specifications.
