In this work, wire arc additive deposition of Stellite 6 alloy was carried out using cold metal transfer (CMT) process and the microstructural features, microhardness, and high temperature mechanical properties were studied. The as-deposited multi-layer wall was free of any defects. High temperature compression test samples were extracted parallel to the build direction, and the tensile samples were prepared along parallel and perpendicular orientation to the build direction. The hot compression test data was used to predict the flow behavior of the additively deposited alloy using an Arrhenius type equation at a strain of 0.6. The flow behavior of the additively deposited Stellite 6 alloy was similar to the conventional Co-based alloys in spite of the layer-by-layer macrostructure and microstructural variations. Microstructure, hardness, and phase analysis studies were carried out for the deformed samples after hot compression. The high temperature tensile properties were found to be anisotropic and location-specific, which were correlated with the columnar dendritic microstructure, alignment of the layer interfaces and variation in the secondary dendrite arm spacing due to repeated thermal cycles and difference in the cooling rate.
