Overview

Wear Resistant (Co-Cr-W)
Chemistry of AMS 5894. This material surpasses 6K with better ductility, with the same good hardness.

HPA COBALT alloy 6B H is the same composition of Cobalt 6B, except the material is hot rolled and then age hardened. The direct age-hardening after hot rolling provides the maximum hardness and wear resistance. The advantages this creates are increased wear life, retained edge characteristics, and increased hardness. These properties are in addition to the galling and seizing resistance of the regular Cobalt 6B.

Cobalt 6B H is known in the industry as a metal that retains its cutting edge. The economic advantages are in its long wear time, less down time, and fewer replacements.


Applications

Steam turbine erosion shields, Chain saw guide bars, High temperature bearings, Furnace fan blades, Valve stems, Food processing equipment, Needle valves, Centrifuge liners, Hot extrusion dies, Forming dies, Nozzles, Extruder screws, & many other Misc. wear surfaces.

Applications for alloy 6BH also include tile making machines, rock crushing rollers and cement and steel mill equipment. Alloy 6BH is well suited for valve parts, pump plungers

Wrought alloy 6BH offers the fatigue resistance and toughness of a hot worked microstructure, with the heat corrosion and wear resistance of cobalt based alloy. High Performance Alloys, Inc. inventories sheet, and plate. Bar is can be produced 1/2" through 2-1/2" diameter. Bar can be supplied in random lengths or cut to order. Sheet and plate are offered as whole plates, can be abrasive cut, or processed further using waterjet services.

Machining

Alloy 6BH is generally machined with tungsten-carbide tooling, and will produce a finish of about 200-300 RMS. Carbide inserts are used with a 5-degree (0.9 rad.) negative tool holder and a 30-degree (0.52 rad.) or 45-degree (0.79 rad.) lead angle. Tools for facing or boring are essentially the same except for greater clearances where needed. For best results in drilling, the drill web should be kept thin. Screw machine length, carbide tipped drills should be used. In reaming, a 45-degree (0.79 rad.) cutting lead angle should be used. High speed taps are not recommended for Alloy 6BH but threads can be produced by EDM techniques. For better surface finish, HPA COBALT 6B H should be ground.

6BH is ground to obtain close tolerances with excellent finish properties. Do not quench dry ground material, as may cause surface imperfections.
