Stoody 160FC/160FC-O

The following items have been added to your list


Stoody 160FC wire deposit consists of tungsten carbide particles in a nickel silicon boron matrix. Due to higher tungsten carbide content, Stoody 160FC is an ideal hardfacing overlay with a microstructure that delivers superior toughness and resistance to corrosion and fine particle erosion in slurry type applications. Stoody 160FC also provides improved weldability through enhanced wetting, tie-in, and arc stability.


  • Stoody 160FC microstructure delivers significant abrasion resistance as well as superior toughness and corrosion resistance.
  • Well suited for upstream oil and gas production applications and as an overlay for the more ductile build up alloys like Stoody 155FC.
  • Designed for the GMAW welding process, Stoody 160FC can be applied at a much lower voltage and heat input resulting in reduced interpass temperatures and levels of distortion in the component.
