Hastelloy C-276 - World Wide
A very popular alloy for us, HASTELLOY C-276 alloy is a
nickel-molybdenum-chromium wrought alloy that is generally
considered a versatile corrosion-resistance alloy. C-276 alloy is an
improved wrought version of alloy C in that it usually doesn't need
to be solution heat-treated after welding and has vastly improved
Lightning Bolt stocks C-276 fasteners
for immediate shipment, such as nuts, bolts, nuts, washers, and
studs in c276. This alloy resists the formation of grain-boundary
precipitaties in the weld heat-affected zone. This makes it suitable
for most chemical process applications in the as-welded condition.
However, it should be noted that in environments where attack of the
C-276 alloy weld joint is experienced, C-22 weld filler materials
should be considered.
C-276 alloy has superior resistance to corrosion and to both
oxidizing and reducing media. Because of its adaptability, C-276
alloy can be used where "upset" conditions are likely to occur or in
multipurpose plants. Due to these reasons, Lightning Bolt has been
the supplier to know when in the need of Hastelloy C-276 bolts,
nuts, washers, and other alloy fasteners.
What has made the alloy popular is that HASTELLOY C-276 alloy has
excellent resistance to a wide variety of chemical process
environments, including strong oxidizers such as ferric and cupric
chlorides, hot contaminated media (organic and inorganic), chlorine,
formic and acetic acids, acetic anhydride, and seawater and brine
As of late, it is used in flue gas
desulfurization systems because of its excellent resistance to
sulfur compounds and chloride ions encounted in most scrubbers.
C-276 alloy has excellent resistance to pitting and to
stress-corrosion cracking. It is also one of the few materials that
withstands the corrosive effects of wet chlorine gas, hypochlorite,
and chlorine dioxide.
Hastelloy can be fabricated by a variety
. HASTELLOY C-276 alloy can be forged, hot-upset, and
impact extruded. Although the alloy tends to work-harden, it can
also be successfully deep-drawn, spun, press formed or punched.
