About A 286

A-286 alloy is an age-hardenable iron-based superalloy for applications requiring long-term high strength from -195°C-538°C. If short-term high strength properties are acceptable, the alloy can be used between 704-816°C. Oxidation resistance is high for continuous service to 816°C and intermittent to 982°C.

Aqueous corrosion resistance of A-286  is comparable to 316/316L stainless grade.

Heat treatment according to AMS 5525 requires a solution anneal at 982°C air cool, age at 718°C for 16 hours and then air cool.

FAQs & Resources

Superalloy refers to a group of iron-, cobalt- or nickel-based alloys commonly used in extremely high temperature and highly stressed conditions. Such conditions are commonly found in aircraft engines where high-performance nickel-based (most common) superalloys are subject to about 10,000 rpm and temperature as high as 2000 °C. These conditions are essential because when the engines run at higher temperature, less fuel is needed. Therefore these superalloys are always going to be in high demand and at the forefront of materials and metallurgical research field. The ‘super’ superalloys are being developed as we speak!
