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.
Is A286 a Stainless Steel?
A286 is an iron-nickel-chromium alloy with additions of molybdenum and titanium. A 286 is one of the most popular high temperature alloys. As one of the austenitic alloys it maintains good strength and oxidation resistance at temperatures up to 1300ºF. Due to its high strength and excellent fabrication characteristics.
Applications for A 286:
This Stainless Steel is used in various components of aircraft and industrial gas turbines. A286 is also widely used in the offshore oil and gas industry where the components are subject to high levels of heat and stress. A286 withstands high temperatures and at times is used to replace Titanium in extremely high heat situations.
