What is Hastelloy Metal?

Many nickel-based steel alloys exhibit high resistance to corrosion, and Hastelloy is one of the best. In addition to outstanding resistance to all manner of pitting and cracking, parts made from Hastelloy metal blends tend to find good use across a wide range of chemical applications that might otherwise oxidize the metal. Additional elements such as molybdenum and chromium round out the profile of an alloy that is widely regarded as one of the world’s toughest.

You can get Hastelloy steel in variety of forms here, from contour rings to open dies, shafts, plates and sheets. No matter what the shape, Hastelloy metal exhibits advantages such as high-temperature strength in vacuums and atmospheres that are chemically inert. More so than any other Ni-Cr-Mo alloy, Hastelloy metal has become the steel of choice for corrosion resistance and versatility.

Here at All Metals & Forge, the ISO9001:2000- and AS9100-certified engineers offer nothing less than total expertise in the melting and forming of this powerful steel. All Metals & Forge prides itself on offering a far broader range of specialty steels than anyone else in the business, which may be one of the reasons so many industry-leading machine shops come here for close-tolerance parts made quickly and inexpensively. The simple fact is that nobody does it better.

If you are looking for powerful steels and do not want to shunt the materials to another shop for finishing, you have come to the right place. All Metals & Forge offers a number of heat treatments and other finishing processes, and the work always includes regular communication with you, the client. If you still have questions or want to place an order today, write info@steelforge.com or call the group here at (973) 276-5000.
