Executive Cobalt based products are produced to exhibit superior mechanical properties to challenge the most aggressive service environments. Clean, consistent welding wires and electrode allow operators to produce the highest quality welds.
Executive Cobalt 1 (SMAW)
The alloy has a higher carbide content (19%) than those made using either Cobalt 6 or Cobalt 12 electrodes. The composition is such that primary hypereutectic carbides are found in the microstructure. This characteristic gives the alloy higher wear resistance, accompanied by reductions in the impact and corrosion resistance. The higher hardness also means a greater tendancy to stress crack during cooling. This cracking tendancy may be minimized by closely monitoring preheating, Interpass temperature and post heating techniques. While the CoCr deposits soften somewhat at elevated temperatures, they normally are considered immune to tempering. Used to build up mixer rotors and items that encounter severe abrasion and low impact.
