HASTELLOY Alloy C-22 is a nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy with enhanced resistance to pitting, crevice corrosion and stress corrosion cracking. It resists the formation of grain boundary precipitates in the weld-heat affected zone making it suitable for use in the as-welded condition. C-22 has outstanding resistance to both reducing and oxidizing media and because of its resistibility can be used where "upset" conditions are likely to occur. It is proven to possess excellent weldability and high corrosion resistance as consumable filler wires and electrodes. The alloy has proven results as a filler wire in many applications. As filler wire use when other corrosion resistant wires have failed.
C-22 can easily be cold-worked because of its ductility and cold-forming is the preferred method of forming. More energy is required because the alloy is generally stiffer than austenitic stainless steels. 0.28" thick sheet in the heat-treated at 2050°F, rapid quenched condition, has an average olsen cup depth of 0.49".
