Specialty Alloys For Wire Cloth

Page 1

WIRE CLOTHSPECIALTY ALLOYS FOR WIRE CLOTHDirect Metals® manufactures wire cloth from a variety of metals and alloys, depending on our customers’ specific needs. The environment in which the wire cloth will be used is usually the most important factor in determining the material to be used.For example, certain alloys can provide resistance to corrosive or oxidating environments, while others offer enhanced strength, abrasion resistance or the ability to withstand extreme temperatures. The color or appearance of the wire cloth is still another consideration when it is used for architectural or other design purposes.Direct Metals® has many of these materials available from stock. The following descriptions provide a general guideline to their most important features. Our engineering staff provides expert design assistance to ensure the most suitable materials are chosen.Other metals and alloys may be available on request.CORROSION-RESISTANT ALLOYSCARPENTER® 20Cb-3®[(UNS N08020) Ni 35%, Fe 37%, Cr 20%, Cu 3.5%, Mo 2.5%]Provides outstanding resistance to stress-corrosion cracking, crevice corrosion, intergranular attack and pitting. Because of its strong resistance to chlorides and sulfuric, phosphoric and nitric acids, it has broad application across many indus-tries including pharmaceutical production, pickling tanks, synthetic rubber, gas scrubbers and pumps.HASTELLOY® alloy B-2[(UNS N10655) Ni 68%, Mo 28%, Fe 2%, Co 1%, Cr 1%]Offers superior resistance to a wide range of organic acids, as well as hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid and aluminum chloride. Resists stress-corrosion cracking. Favored by the chemical processing industry, it can function in temperatures ranging from ambient to 1500°F.HASTELLOY® alloy C-276[(UNS N10276) Ni 57%, Mo 16%, Cr 15.5%, Fe 5.5%]Particularly suitable for use in corrosive environments where reducing and oxidizing are common. Resists localized attack, pitting and stress corrosion cracking. In wide use in the pulp and paper industries, as well as pollution control and chemical processing.INCONEL® alloy 600[(UNS N06600) Ni 76.0%, Cr 15.5%, Fe 8.0%]Ideal for use in high-temperature environments (up to 2150°F.) that also pose the threat of oxidizing, reducing and corro-sion. Offers superior resistance due to its high nickel and chromium content. Because of these properties, it is often specified for nuclear steam generator equipment, heat treating equipment and furnace muffles. Also used for electronic components and chemical and food processing.MONEL® alloy 400[(UNS N04400) Ni 66.5%, Cu 31.5%]An extremely versatile alloy, used in a wide range of applications including electrical and electronic components, water heaters and heat exchangers, processing equipment, the petroleum industry, marine fixtures, and valves and pumps. Suitable for use across a wide range of temperatures and conditions, it offers excellent corrosion resistance, high strength and easy weldability.Phone: 770-528-9001 • Toll-Free: 1-800-711-4939 • •
