Stainless Steel 316Ti

316 Ti is similar to 316L but has better high temperature strength and mechanical strength. Stainless Steel 316Ti is also known as AISI 316Ti, Supra316Ti, Nirosta 4571, Polarit 761, and Remanit 4571.

Stainless Steel 316LVM

Regarded as ‘Medical Grade’, this stainless steel 316 is vacuum melted to achieve the extremely high levels of purity and ‘cleanliness’ required for surgical implants. It has excellent resistance in physiological environments, to general and intergranular corrosion, to pitting and crevice corrosion. Stainless Steel 316LVM is also known as AISI 316LVM.

Stainless Steel 316

Stainless Steel 316 has slightly better corrosion resistance than 302 and 304. It also has better non-magnetic properties. Stainless Steel 316 is also known as AISI 316.

Stainless Steel 304

Stainless Steel 304, like 302, has good mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. Stainless Steel 304 is also known as AISI 304.

Stainless Steel 302

Stainless Steel 302 has good mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. Stainless Steel 302 is also known as AISI 302.

Phynox†

This Cobalt-Chromium-Nickel alloy gives a combination of high strength, ductility and good mechanical properties and is age hardenable. Phynox† also has excellent fatigue life, corrosion resistance in numerous environments and is non-magnetic. Phynox† often provides the ideal solution whenever high mechanical performance is required under severely corrosive service conditions. Its mechanical strength increases with cold rolling strain, while additional strengthening can be achieved by age hardening at 500°C. It is recommended to use Phynox† where a high resistance to corrosion and / or low relaxation at temperatures up to 380°C (715°F) are required. This alloy is used in medical devices, dental products, surgical implants and orthopedics. Phynox† is also known as Elgiloy, Conichrome and Alloy 3J21.

Hastelloy˘ C-2000

This alloy was developed to broaden the application range of one alloy. With the addition of Copper to the Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum system, Hastelloy C-2000 is resistant to an extensive range of corrosive chemicals, including sulphuric, hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids. The combination of Molybdenum and Copper provide excellent corrosion resistance to reducing media, while the high Chromium content gives good oxidising resistance. Like other nickel alloys, Hastelloy C-2000 is ductile, easy to form and weld, while possessing excellent resistance to stress corrosion cracking in chloride-bearing solutions.

Hastelloy˘ C-276

This Nickel-Molybdenum-Chromium alloy with the addition of Tungsten, has excellent corrosion resistance in a wide range of corrosive media and is especially resistant to pitting and crevice corrosion. Hastelloy C-276 is considered to be the most versatile corrosion resistant alloy available, as it is resistant to the formation of grain boundary precipitates in the weld heat-affected zone; this makes it ideal for most chemical process applications in an as welded condition. Hastelloy C-276 also has exceptional resistance to pitting, stress-corrosion cracking and oxidizing atmospheres, as well as excellent resistance to multiple different chemical environments. Hastelloy C-276 is also known as Nicrofer 5716, Superimphy 276, and Inconel C-276.

Hastelloy˘ C-22

A Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum alloy with better overall resistance and versatility than any other NiCrMo available. It has excellent resistance to localised corrosion and to a variety of mixed industrial chemicals. Hastelloy C-22 is used in severely corrosive media involving high chloride and temperature applications such as buffer solutions, active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), fabric softeners, cleaning supplies, and condiments such as soy and chili sauce. Like other nickel alloys, Hastelloy C-22 is extremely ductile, exhibits exceptional weldability, and can easily be fabricated into industrial components. Hastelloy C-22 is also known as Nicrofer 5621, Superimphy C22, and Inconel 622.

Hastelloy˘ B-3

This Nickel-Molybdenum alloy gives excellent resistance to hydrochloric acid at all concentrations and temperatures from ambient to high. It also withstands sulphuric, acetic, formic and phosphoric acids and other non-oxidizing media. B-3 also has excellent resistance to pitting corrosion and to stress-corrosion cracking. Hastelloy B-3 is not recommended in the presence of ferric or cupric salts. Like other nickel alloys, Hastelloy B-3 is ductile and can be formed and welded. It resists stress corrosion cracking in chloride-bearing solutions, and is able to withstand fluoride-bearing media and concentrated sulfuric acid, both of which result in damage to zirconium alloys.
