You don’t miss any new videos and it helps the channel. So let’s jump in!

Today’s topic is a Nickel based alloy….  Hastelloy X when produced by Haynes International   or called alloy “x” when produced by other mills.

So what is Hastelloy X? Well, it’s primarily Nickel with Chromium, Iron,and Molybdenum as the major alloying elements.  The UNS designation for the chemical composition is N06002.

A solid solution strengthened material, it cannot be further strengthened by heat treatment. Is Hastelloy X Magnetic? Good question! Its austenitic structure is non- magnetic, so the answer is no, Hastelloy X is not magnetic. Typical solution annealing temperature is 2150 deg F.

Excellent strength and oxidation resistance at temperatures up to 2200 deg F;  this alloy is often used for combustion chambers, afterburners, and other high temperature aerospace components.
