New nickel alloy

Eutectic UK has developed and patented a new spray-and-fused powder alloy for one of the toughest corrosion and wear applications available. When a cement manufacturer came to Eutectic with a mixed corrosion problem combined with high-temperature abrasion wear, Eutectic developed a new nickel-based alloy as part of its Eutalloy range, alloy 53 606. It has high levels of special additives such as silicon, boron and molybdenum. "This is ideal for applications such as boiler tubes in the power generation sector," comments Warren Lewis, Product Manager, "as well as for chemical, waste recycling and pulp & paper industries, where corrosion at high temperatures is prevalent". The Eutalloy powder range uses a surface alloying and self-fluxing process that can be applied on a variety of metals. The degree of hardness it achieves is designedto lead to in improved performance and lower costs.
