Characteristics of Ni-Hard 4

Of today’s abrasion-resistant alloys, Ni-Hard 4 offers the greatest level of abrasion resistance. In addition to offering high abrasion resistance, Ni-Hard 4 is also more resistant to shock loads. This makes Ni-Hard 4 ideal for applications in dredge pumps where stones and other hard solid objects can be sucked into the pump.

The presence of chrome and nickel makes Ni-Hard 4 more resistant to corrosion than cast iron. Ni-Hard4 consists of chromium-iron carbides, retained in a martensitic/bainitic base structure.
