Stoody 102 deposit has a composition and physical properties that are similar to those of H-12 tool steel. Weldability is very good and the wire can be applied out-of-position. Stoody 102 requires carbide tools for machining. It is good for hot wear applications up to 1100F.
- Multiple layers can be applied without difficulty when proper preheat and interpass temperatures are maintained.
