Stoody 131 is recommended for parts where a low coefficient of friction and minimum cross checking are desirable. Deposits provide excellent bearing surfaces on friction type guides and cement mill gudgeons. It can be applied to carbon, low alloy, and manganese steels.
- Deposits are not machinable or forgeable. It is generally limited to 2 passes, although multiple layers can be applied with proper procedure (fast travel and preheat control).
