Hastelloy C-276 Balls

Hastelloy balls are resistant to strong oxidizing agents such as free chlorine and aqueous solutions of ferric and cupric salts.

Hastelloy exhibits excellent resistance to the following types of acids:

  • Acetic
  • Formic
  • Hydrochloric
  • Hydrofluoric
  • Nitric
  • Phosphoric
  • Sulfuric

Hastelloy is highly resistant to mixtures of zinc and ammonium chlorides. It is also used extensively in check valves where resistance to corrosion and wear is critical.
