Stellite is a family of cobalt-chromium alloys known for their excellent wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and high-temperature stability. Stellite is commonly used to manufacture band saw blade teeth or cutting tool inserts, particularly for cutting hard or abrasive materials, such as high-alloy steels or titanium. Stellite-tipped blades provide longer service life and improved cutting performance compared to conventional high-speed steel or carbon steel blades but may require more specialized maintenance.
