    Alloy A286 Nickel

Type A286 is an iron-based super alloy useful for applications requiring high strength and corrosion resistance up to 1300 degrees Fahrenheit and for lower stress applications at higher temperatures. A286 can be hardened to a strength level. The alloy is also useful for low temperature applications requiring a ductile, non-magnetic high strength material at temperatures ranging from above room temperature down to at least -320 degrees Fahrenheit. It can also be used for moderately corrosive applications in aqueous solutions. 

Common Apllications of Alloy A286 Nickel

  • Jet Engine
  • Moderate corrosion applications in aqueous solutions
  • Non-magnetic cryogenic equipment

We supply Alloy A286 nickel sheet in widths from 36" down to .250" and standard lengths of 96" and 120", but are capable of shearing or custom leveling to your required lengths and widths.  Alloy A286 coil can also be slit to your desired width.

Alloy A286 General Properties

Type 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.

This alloy is a heat and corrosion resistant austenitic ironbase material which can be age hardened to a high strength level. It is also used for low temperature applications requiring a ductile, non-magnetic high strength material at temperatures ranging from above room temperature down to at least -320°F (-196°C). The alloy may be used for moderate corrosion applications in aqueous solutions.

Type A286 can be produced by AOD refining or vacuum induction melting. Vacuum arc or electroslag remelting procedures may be used to further refine the material.

Resistance to Corrosion and Oxidation

Type A286 alloy content is similar in chromium, nickel, and molybdenum to some of the austenitic stainless steels. Consequently, this alloy possesses a level of aqueous corrosion resistance comparable to that of the austenitic stainless steels. In elevated temperature service, the level of corrosion resistance to atmospheres such as those encountered in jet engine applications is excellent to at least 1300°F (704°C). Oxidation resistance is high for continuous service up to 1500°F (816°C) and intermittent service up to 1800°F (982°C).
