High nickel alloy steel is both strong and highly versatile, as well as heat-resistant. It also has low thermal expansion as well as high corrosion-resistance against a broad array of corrosive environments such as chemicals, petroleum, and seawater. Nickel alloys are a special class of metal alloys which contain a high concentration of nickel, often greater than 20%. It also contains a varying percentage of carbon composition.
Stainless steel A286 is a heat and corrosion resistant austenitic iron-base material that can be age hardened to a high strength level. It is designed for use at temperatures up to 1,300°F where good corrosion resistance, excellent creep strength and high tensile strength are required.
This alloy displays improved corrosion resistance and toughness as a quench-hardenable stainless steel.
