What Should I Know About Machining Hastelloy?

Posted by Chip Holm on May 8, 2019 11:12:15 AM

Considerations of Costs and Qualities of Hastelloy

It’s well-known that Hastelloy, also known as C276, is among the most difficult materials to work with—due to, in part, the toll it takes on the tooling but also its heat- and-corrosion resistance properties. This material is in high demand in industries like pharmaceutical, petrochemical, chemical, oil and gas, nuclear, pollution control, etc.,—anywhere there is extreme heat and a caustic environment, so there is good reason to discuss why it is sought after.
