Description

Alloy(NIT) 60 is an anti-galling stainless steel that has excellent wear resistance. This alloy has uniform corrosion resistance and provides great high-temperature oxidation resistance as well. Due to its outstanding galling resistance at both ambient and elevated temperatures, Alloy 60 is used in applications such as bridge pins, valve stems, roller bearings and bushings, and pump wear rings and lobes. It performs well in nominally inert atmospheres where metal to metal wear is an issue.
