A286 Steel

Stainless steel A-286 is a heat and corrosion resistant austenitic iron-base material that can be age hardened to a high strength level. It is designed for use at temperatures up to 704°C (1300°F) where good corrosion resistance, excellent creep strength and high tensile strength are required. The alloy can also be used for low temperature applications that require a ductile, non-magnetic high strength material at temperatures below room temperature.

*Available in inch and metric sizes.


The advantages of high temperature products:

  • Specialty alloys to withstand up to 800 degrees Celsius
  • Minimize oxidation and corrosion at high temperature
  • Minimize galling with proper coating and plating

A-286 is a durable alloy with advanced precipitation hardening characteristics, and is ideal for use in demanding field conditions.
