A286 Nickel Alloy - is an austenitic alloy in the aged and hardened condition. It is designed for applications requiring high strength and good corrosion resistance at temperatures up to 704°C (1300°F).

Alloy 20 - is a nickel-chromium-molybdenum stainless steel alloy developed for applications involving sulfuric acid. Its corrosion resistance also finds other uses in the chemical, food, pharmaceutical, and plastics industries. Alloy 20 resists pitting and chloride ion corrosion and its copper content protects it from sulfuric acid. Alloy 20 is not a SS but a nickel alloy (ASTM).

Alloy Steel - is steel that is alloyed with a variety of elements in total amounts between 1.0% and 50% by weight to improve its mechanical properties. Alloy steels are broken down into two groups: low-alloy steels and high-alloy steels. Every steel is truly an alloy, but not all steels are called “alloy steels”.

Aluminum Chain - aluminum is the predominant metal. Will keep their apparent shine in a dry environment due to the formation of a clear, protective layer of aluminum oxide. Galvanic corrosion can occur in wet environments.

Brass Alloy 260 - sheet metal that contains copper and zinc. It is malleable and easy to cut and shape for both simple and highly technical applications. Often used in electronic components and electrical equipment. Alloy 260 has become known as "cartridge brass" due to its use in gun ammunition.

Gray Poly-Coated - used for corrosion protection of magnesium alloys.

Hastelloy - is the registered trademark name of Haynes International, Inc. The trademark is applied as the prefix name of a range of twenty two different highly corrosion-resistant metal alloys, loosely grouped by the metallurgical industry under the material term “superalloys” or “high-performance alloys”.The predominant alloying ingredient is typically the transition metal nickel. Other alloying ingredients are added to nickel in each of the subcategories of this trademark designation and include varying percentages of the elements molybdenum, chromium, cobalt, iron, copper, manganese, titanium, zirconium, aluminum, carbon, and tungsten.

Incoloy - refers to a range of superalloys produced by the Special Metals Corporation group of companies. They are mostly nickel-based, and designed for excellent corrosion resistance as well as strength at high temperatures; there are specific alloys for resistance to particular chemical attacks (e.g. alloy 020 is designed to be resistance to sulphuric acid, DS to be used in heat-treating furnaces with reactive atmospheres and many heat cycles).

Inconel Alloy - is a registered trademark of Special Metals Corporation that refers to a family of austenitic nickel-chromium-based superalloys. Are typically used in high temperature applications. It is often referred to in English as "Inco" (or occasionally "Iconel"). Common trade names for Inconel include: Inconel 625, Chronin 625, Altemp 625, Haynes 625, Nickelvac 625 and Nicrofer 6020.[2]

Monel - is a trademark of Special Metals Corporation for a series of nickel alloys, primarily composed of nickel (up to 67%) and copper, with some iron and other trace elements. Monel alloy 400 is binary alloy of the same proportions of nickel and copper as is found naturally in the nickel ore from the Sudbury (Ontario) mines.

Silicon Bronze - a bronze with 2-3% silicon that is resistant to corrosion.

Bronze - an alloy of copper and tin and sometimes other elements; also any copper-base alloy containing other elements in place of tin.

Steel - A generally hard, strong, durable, malleable alloy of iron and carbon, usually containing between 0.2 and 1.5 percent carbon, often with other constituents such as manganese, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, copper, tungsten, cobalt, or silicon, depending on the desired alloy properties, and widely used as a structural material.

Titanium - A strong, low-density, highly corrosion-resistant, lustrous white metallic element that occurs widely in igneous rocks and is used to alloy aircraft metals for low weight, strength, and high-temperature stability. Has a melting point of 1,660°C; boiling point 3,287°C; specific gravity 4.54; valence 2, 3, 4.

March 7, 2016, 4:06pm Let me put it this way: January started my 37th year in this business, (I’ll be 55 in June, so I started when I got out of high school). Nobody ever calls when you go over and above and get them out of a bind. You can fill 99 out of 100 items, and they will call and bitch about that one item. Very seldom do they let you know how you got them out of a bind., or did the extra for them, or stayed late or delivered stuff on the weekends, etc. They have come to take it for granted, but I suppose we created the monster by the service level we maintain. And service is what we have that the big guys do not. John Wilson, there at U-Bolt It, did a fantastic job for us. I figure the sizes and quantities we were requesting were a little of a shocker, but John was all over it. And we appreciate all that he did. All of these SS U-Bolts were for our nuclear plant here in Mississippi. They went on re-fuel outage a couple of weeks ago, which they do every two years. And when they go on an outage, it is wide open for about a month. Cost doesn’t matter, freight doesn’t matter, get it here, and get it here fast. I’ve been through about 10 of these outages, and they never plan ahead very well. So compliments are in order for John and whoever else there did these for us. U-Bolt It did an exceptional job and we do appreciate it. Anything else comes up like this, you will be the first on the list. Let me add this though…..I’m not totally convinced that John went out in the plant and got his hands dirty….just saying

– M.
