I have never done this before. Could anyone give me direction, on
how to go about this? Thanks-Rob
I may be wrong but, getting the Stellite to bend in to coils may be the hardest part.
What kind of base material are you putting it on?
Thanks Ron for replying. Stellite and Weartech supply tubular wire, in
various sizes .045, .062 and .093.(coiled) for MIG. I would be overlaying
it on 316, 17-4, Inconel 718 and maybe, 4340.
Stellite is available in a number of forms. If no particular spec is dictated by contract or print-I would go with Stellite 21. A wire form, it is used extensively in wire feed type work. The other bonus is that it goes on softer than the 6 and 12 alloys. 21 will rival the 6 and 12 alloys after work hardening or machining.
You can get the 1, 6, 12 and 21 alloys as gas shielded MIG wires, and in some cases open arc or sub arc wires, from Stoody as well. To learn more, check out the product data sheets in the Stoody literature library online:
Hope this helps.
