Definition - What does Alloy C276 mean?
Alloy C276 is known as a universally available material that exhibits great corrosion resistant properties. This alloy is a mix of nickel, chromium and molybdenum alloys with the addition of small quantities of tungsten to make it corrosion-proof in harsh environments.
Alloy C276 is also known as Inconel C276 or Hastelloy C.
Corrosionpedia explains Alloy C276
Industrial nomenclature or the recommended grade for Alloy C276 is UNS N10276 / W.Nr. 2.4819.
This alloy is useful in a wide range of environments ranging from moderately oxidizing to strong reducing conditions. A limitation of this alloy is its low chromium content, which means that this alloy is not suitable for use in strong oxidizing environments or hot concentrated nitric acid environments. However, this alloy exhibits excellent resistant properties towards phosphoric acid, hydrochloric acid, acid chlorides, sulfuric acid, solvents, formic and acetic acids.
