VDM® Alloy C-276 is a nickel-chrome-molybdenum alloy with tungsten. It is characterized by an extraordinary resistance across a wide range of corrosive, watery media; in particular oxidizing and reducing acids. VDM® Alloy C-276 shows particularly high resistance against chloride-induced crevice, pitting and stress corrosion.
VDM® Alloy C-276 (2.4819/N10276) can be used in many chemical processes with both oxidizing as well as reducing media. The high chrome and molybdenum concentrations make the alloy resistant to chloride ion attacks. The tungsten content further increases this resistance.
VDM® Alloy C-276 has a broad field of application in the chemicals and petrochemicals industry, for components in organic processes containing chlorides, and for catalytic systems. The material can be used especially in cases where hot, contaminated mineral acids, solutions or organic acids (such as formic acid and acetic acid) and sea water occur.
