Ultimet (UNS R31233 / W.Nr. 2.4681)
Ultimet alloy (UNS R31233 / W.Nr. 2.4681) provides a unique blend of properties. From a wear stand- point, it behaves like the Stellite alloys with lower carbon contents. From a corrosion standpoint, it possesses many of the attributes of the C-type and G-type Hastelloy materials, in particular outstanding resistance to chloride-induced pitting and crevice corrosion. Its mechanical and welding characteristics are much closer to those of the Hastelloy alloys than those of the Stellite alloys, whose low ductilities can be problematic.
