At Kennametal®, our wear solutions begin with our material science expertise which we combine with our proven manufacturing methods. Our portfolio of materials includes cobalt alloys such as Stellite™ and Tribaloy™, nickel alloys such as Nistelle™ and Deloro™, Delcrome™ iron-based alloys, and a broad range of tungsten carbide grades.
Stellite alloys have a long and distinguished history of delivering in the toughest applications. Since its inception in 1912, the Stellite family of alloys has evolved into a comprehensive range of material solutions. Stellite offers strong protection when a combination of corrosion, wear and high temperature properties are required. Stellite alloys are available as consumable powders, hard facing materials and equipment, wrought bar and sheet, as well as finished castings.
Kennametal also develops materials specific to additive manufacturing, offering additive metal powder feedstock materials and finished parts. Our gas atomization powder production capabilities supply cobalt, nickel, and iron powders optimized for specific additive manufacturing processes. Kennametal’s expertise in sintering and post printing processes provide custom solutions in both tungsten carbide and Stellite™ materials.
Kennametal Conforma Clad™ incorporates two industry workhorse materials — tungsten carbide and Stellite™ cobalt-based alloys — into our unique cloth-based and Ultraflex™ slurry-based processes. This enables us to provide superior wear-resistant claddings in a wide variety of substrate materials and geometries for a range of industries and applications.
Through close partnerships with our customers, we design, develop, and manufacture solutions that deliver exceptional value throughout the lifecycle of the components.
