Ferro-Titanit Nikro 143 is one of a series of metal-matrix composites manufactured by a powder metallurgy process and is a range of carbide-alloyed materials from Deutsche Edelstahlwerke. The Nikro 143 grade is an iron-base alloy containing 30 wt.% titanium carbide. Because of its high wear resistance and low tendency toward cold welding, Ferro-Titanit is particularly used in forming and cutting tools, hydraulic jacks for polymer production, and pelletizing and granulating cutter blades. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and compressive, shear, and bend strength as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on heat treating. Filing Code: Fe-168. Producer or source: Deutsche Edelstahlwerke GmbH.
