Stellite 6

B&B Coatings can provide a bespoke coating solution to suit your specific application. Stellite 6 is an extremely hard wearing coating that is widely used in the Oil & Gas and environments with a high level of wear. 


Stellite as a metal is that is extremely hard, this makes it difficult to machine which increases lead times and costs for industry. Using the HVOF process we are able to give a components that attributes of Stellite 6 without this cost.

Stellite 6 provides an excellent corrosion resistance. This is down to the inherent characteristics of the hard carbide phase dispersed in a CoCr alloy matrix, which allows Stellite 6 coatings to keep their corrosion resistance properties even at high temperatures. Similar to stainless steels, Stellite 6 corrodes primarily through a pitting mechanism and not by general mass loss in seawater and chloride solutions.

Stellite 6 is the industry standard for a lot of general purpose wear resistance. This includes many forms of mechanical and chemical degradation. Stellite 6 Coatings will keep a high level of hardness up to 500°C. Stellite 6 will also have a good resistance to impact and cavitation erosion.

Stellite 6 has a wide range of applications but is most popular with our valve customers, where it is often employed as a replacement for Electroless Nickel Plating where the same levels of hardness and corrosion resistance cannot be achieved.
