Hex Bolts – A286 Specifications
A286 alloy is a heat and corrosion resistant austenitic ironbase material which can be age hardened to a high strength level. This alloy’s content is similar in chromium, nickel, and molybdenum to some of the austenitic stainless steels. Consequently, A286 alloy possesses a level of aqueous corrosion resistance comparable to that of the austenitic stainless steels.
A286 is an iron-base superalloy useful for applications requiring high strength and corrosion resistance up to 1300°F (704°C) and for lower stress applications at higher temperatures and it may be used for moderate corrosion applications in aqueous solutions.
A286 alloy can be produced by AOD refining or vacuum induction melting. Vacuum arc or electroslag remelting procedures can be used to refine the material even more. A286 alloy is available in plate, sheet and strip.
Common applications for A286 include:
