Stainless Steel AL-6XN®

ASTM B 688, B 691, B 675 / 676
B 462, B 366, B 564, B 804
UNS N08367

The AL-6XN® alloy is a superaustenitic stainless steel which was developed by Allegheny Ludlum Corporation. It is a high molybdenum superaustenitic stainless steel developed to handle oxidizing and acidic chloride solutions. The higher levels of chromium, molybdenum, and nitrogen provide a far greater resistance to chloride pitting, crevice corrosion, and stress-corrosion cracking than exhibited by the 300 series stainless steels.

Mega Mex supplies AL-6XN® in the form of plates, sheets, strips, bar, wire, pipe, fittings, welding wire, welding electrode.

Typical applications are:

  • Pulp bleaching equipment and piping
  • Sea water heat exchangers
  • Chemical process tanks and pipelines
  • Brewery equipment
  • Reverse osmosis desalination equipment and pumps
  • Offshore oil and gas process systems
  • Food processing equipment
  • Pharmaceutical processing pipes and vessels
  • Tall oil distillation columns

Chemical Composition:

Iron Balance

Fabrication with AL-6XN®

AL-6XN® is readily fabricated by using standard austenitic stainless steel practices. In comparison to carbon steel, stainless steels are tougher and tend to work harden rapidly.
