Stellite 12 Alloy

Stellite 12 could be considered an intermediate alloy between Stellite 6 and Stellite 1. It contains a higher fraction of hard, brittle carbides than Stellite 6, and has increased resistance to low-angle erosion, abrasion, and severe sliding wear whilst retaining reasonable impact and cavitation resistance. Stellite 12 is often used self-mated or running against Stellite 6 or Stellite 1.

The higher tungsten content provides better high-temperature properties compared to Stellite 6, and it can be used at temperatures up to about 700 ̊C.
