Abstract or Summary
  • This paper is a metallurgical study of the microstructure of a cobalt base hard facing alloy to determine the cause for inconsistant wear properties. Wear tests on a Stellite 6 alloy, deposited using oxyacetylene welding techniques, resulted in a wide range of weight losses. Microscopic examination has revealed the probable cause to be variations in carbon content after welding. Cooling rates may also be a contributing factor. The "as received" structure of the Stellite alloy is a matrix of fine carbides surrounding large dendrites of cobalt rich material. The use of a reducing flame during welding causes an increase in carbon resulting in a structure of massive, hard, and brittle primary carbides in a soft but tough cobalt matrix containing eutectic microconstituents and free graphite. This structure appears to be the most desirable one for a superior wearing material when subjected to dry grinding abrasion.
