Stainless steel is a highly sought-after alloy that has earned a lot of recognition from varying industries and manufacturing services due to its sheer strength and aesthetic appeal.


This contains significant resisting properties to reduce environments such as sulfuric, phosphoric, and acetic acids, and hydrogen chloride gas.


Hastelloy is one of the high-performance alloys that are greatly applied to inert and vacuum atmospheres that are exposed to aluminum chloride catalysts, hydrochloric acid, and reducing chemicals.

Some of the industries where this alloy is applied are mostly exposed to phosphoric, sulfuric, acetic, and hydrochloric acids. Thus making it a suitable alloy for certain high-heat-based applications. This type of high-performance nickel alloy can offer exceptional creep-and-stress rupture all while maintaining good casting attributes.

This alloy has great machinability properties which include:

  • Use of plenty cutting fluid
  • Machine in the cast and wrought forms
  • High-speed steels cutting speeds
  • Cut at low speeds
  • Grind high-speed cutting tools in turning and lathe operations

Other applications:

  • Metallurgical industry
  • Chemical process industry
  • High-speed steels cutting speeds
  • Cut at low speeds
  • Jet components:
    • aircraft nozzle vanes
    • tail cones
    • engine parts
    • cabin heaters
    • collector rings

For workability, Hastelloy is being annealed to produce ideal characteristics for fabricating sheets. Below you will find a chart containing details on different alloy grades should this material pique your interest.
