AL-6XN Fasteners with World Wide Shipping
AL-6XN alloy is a super-austenitic metal developed to resist crevice
corrosion, pitting, chloride-induced corrosion, and stress corrosion
cracking. It can also holdup against alkaline and salt solutions,
protecting against metallic contami-
nation of product and
preventing corrosion of the fluid transfer system.
AL-6XN alloy was originally designed for saltwater uses. This "super
alloy" resists the assault of corrosive food and beverage products
such as: sports drinks, ketchup, soy and barbecue sauce, and salsa.
It is also used effectively in chemical, API, cosmetic, brewery,
desalination, semi-conductor, aerospace, biopharm, pulp and paper,
and gas handling applications. AL-6XN hex bolts, nuts washers, and
stud bolts can be fabricated to meet your projects exact
requirements. Lightning Bolt specializes in hard to find alloy
fasteners, including AL-6XN.
The AL-6XN alloy is a superaustenitic stainless steel which was
designed by Allegheny Ludlum Corporation. It bestows far greater
resistance to chloride pitting, crevice corrosion and stress
corrosion cracking than exhibited by the standard 300 series
stainless steels, and is less costly than the traditional
nickel-base corrosion resistant alloys. Its UNS Designation of the
AL-6XN alloy is N08367.
The high nickel (24%) and molybdenum (6.3%) contents of the AL-6XN
alloy give it great resistance to chloride stress-corrosion
cracking. The molybdenum confers resistance to chloride pitting. In
addition, the nitrogen content of AL-6XN alloy serves to further
increase pitting resistance and also gives it higher strength than
typical 300 series austenitic stainless steels, and thereby often
allows it to be used in thinner sections. AL-7XN’s high levels of
chromium, molybdenum and nitrogen serve to produce exceptional
corrosion resistance for this formable and weldable stainless alloy.
