AL-6XN Fasteners with World Wide Shipping

AL-6XN Fasteners

AL-6XN alloy is a super-austenitic metal developed to resist crevice corrosion, pitting, chloride-induced corrosion, and stress corrosion cracking. It can also holdup against alkaline and salt solutions, protecting against metallic contami-
nation of product and preventing corrosion of the fluid transfer system.

AL-6XN alloy was originally designed for saltwater uses. This “super alloy” resists the assault of corrosive food and beverage products such as: sports drinks, ketchup, soy and barbecue sauce, and salsa. It is also used effectively in chemical, API, cosmetic, brewery, desalination, semi-conductor, aerospace, biopharm, pulp and paper, and gas handling applications. AL-6XN hex bolts, nuts washers, and stud bolts can be fabricated to meet your projects exact requirements. Lightning Bolt specializes in hard to find alloy fasteners, including AL-6XN.  Click here to learn more about AL6XN Fastners.

The AL-6XN alloy is a superaustenitic stainless steel which was designed by Allegheny Ludlum Corporation. It bestows far greater resistance to chloride pitting, crevice corrosion and stress corrosion cracking than exhibited by the standard 300 series stainless steels, and is less costly than the traditional nickel-base corrosion resistant alloys. Its UNS Designation of the AL-6XN alloy is N08367.

The high nickel (24%) and molybdenum (6.3%) contents of the AL-6XN alloy give it great resistance to chloride stress-corrosion cracking. The molybdenum confers resistance to chloride pitting. In addition, the nitrogen content of AL-6XN alloy serves to further increase pitting resistance and also gives it higher strength than typical 300 series austenitic stainless steels, and thereby often allows it to be used in thinner sections. AL-7XN’s high levels of chromium, molybdenum and nitrogen serve to produce exceptional corrosion resistance for this formable and weldable stainless alloy.
