High Temperature & Corrosion Resistant Alloys
Molybdenum, 302, 304, 316 Stainless, Nickels 600, 625, 718, 750, Tungsten, Tantalum & Titanium
High temperature, corrosion resistant alloys are mixtures of various metals, including stainless, steel, chrome, nickel, iron, copper, cobalt, molybdenum, tungsten and titanium, that can resist high heat and corrosion more effectively than standard carbon steel.
These alloys are widely used in chemical processing industries, offering high resistance to uniform attack, exceptional localized corrosion and stress corrosion cracking resistance, and ease of welding and fabrication. By eliminating the need for costly workovers, high temperature and corrosion resistant alloys offer valuable life cycle cost advantages.
Molybdenum: Molybdenum is a refractory metallic element that readily forms hard, stable carbides, enhancing hardenability, strength, toughness and resistance to wear and corrosion. Molybdenum is most commonly used is the military and defense industry, semiconductor and specialty machine shops.
302, 304, 316 Stainless: Stainless steel alloys resist corrosion, maintain their strength at high temperatures and are easy to maintain. They most commonly include chromium, nickel and molybdenum. Stainless steel alloys are used in the automotive, aerospace and construction industries.
Nickels 600, 625, 718, 750: Nickel alloys are oxidation and corrosion resistant materials well-suited for extreme environments, exhibiting excellent mechanical strength and creep resistance and high temperatures and good surface stability. Nickel alloys are commonly used in the aviation and aerospace industries, as well as in springs and electrical components.
Tungsten: Tungsten has a hardness and high density that make it ideal for military applications, rocket nozzles, turbine blades and wear-resistant parts and coatings. Tungsten has the lowest coefficient of thermal expansion, highest melting point, lowest vapor pressure and highest tensile strength of all metals in pure form.
Tantalum: Tantalum is used to produce a variety of alloys that have high melting points and good ductility. Its chemical inertness makes tantalum a valuable substitute for platinum. Tantalum alloys are often used in making carbide tools for metalworking equipment, jet engine components, chemical process equipment, nuclear reactors and missile parts.
Titanium: Titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal. Its high corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance, high crack resistance and ability to withstand high temperatures without creeping make titanium ideal for the aerospace, military and marine industries, from naval ships and missiles to landing gear and hydraulic systems.
