A 286 Cold Reduced Nickel Bar - AMS 5726, 5853


This specification covers a corrosion and heat-resisting steel in the form of work hardened bar. A 286 cold reduced nickel bar 15% -17% is typically used in fastener applications requiring room temperature minimum tensile strength of 160 ksi and for use at temperatures up to 1000° F and requiring oxidation resistance up to 1200° F. A286 stainless steel is typically multiple melted with either a vacuum arc remelt (VAR) or electroslag remelt (ESR) practice in the remelt cycle.
