Application
Cobalt #6 Wire (ERCCoCr-A) is a tubular wire version of a cobalt alloy that produces a medium hardness cobalt-chromium deposit for high-temperature applications with good abrasive wear and good impact resistance. Chromium carbides contained in the deposit have excellent resistance to many forms of chemical and mechanical degradation, including galling and cavitation erosion. It bonds well with all weldable steels, including stainless.
