Stoody 964-G deposit is a specially formulated wear resistant alloy which produces a uniform distribution of small primary carbides in a martensitic matrix. The small carbides provide greatly improved wear resistance over martensitic steel, many tool steels, and some conventional chromium carbide alloys. Stoody 964-G possesses excellent resistance to impact and plastic deformation. Deposits are crack free on carbon 300 stainless and manganese steels. Other base metals should be preheated and post heated appropriately. The material is characterized by a high hardness and excellent wear resistance and is recommended for parts where cross checking is undesirable. Stoody 964-G offers improved weldability over chromium carbide and many other tool steel welding wires.
