Cleveland Wire Cloth frequently weaves wire cloth for environments where corrosion- or oxidation-resistant wire mesh is critical.

Stainless Steels are the most common corrosion-resistant alloys.

Here are some more specialized corrosion-resistant alloys:

CARPENTER® 20Cb-3®  [(UNS N08020) Ni 35%, Fe 37%, Cr 20%, Cu 3.5%, Mo 2.5%]

Provides outstanding resistance to stress-corrosion cracking, crevice corrosion, intergranular attack and pitting.  Because of its strong resistance to chlorides and sulfuric, phosphoric and nitric acids, it has broad application across many industries including pharmaceutical production, pickling tanks, synthetic rubber, gas scrubbers and pumps.

HASTELLOY® alloy B-2  [UNS N10655) Ni 68%, Mo 28%, Fe 2%, Co 1%, Cr 1%]

Offers superior resistance to a wide range of organic acides, as well as hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid and aluminum chloride.  Resists stress-corrosion cracking.  Favored by the chemical processing industry, it can function in temperatures ranging from ambient to 1500° F.

HASTELLOY® alloy B-3 [(UNS N10675) Ni 65% min., Mo 28.5%, Cr 1.5%, Fe 1.5%, Co 3% max., W 3% max., Mn 3% max.]

The B-3 alloy exhibits excellent corrosion resistance to hydrochloric acid at all concentrations and temperatures. It is also resistant to sulfuric, acetic, formic, and phosphoric acid, as well as non oxidizing, pitting and stress cracking corrosion. Often used in the chemical processing industry. 

HASTELLOY® alloy C-22 [(UNS N06022) Cr 20-22.5%, Mo 12.5-14.5%, Fe 2-6%, W 2.5-3.5%, Co max. 2.5%]

C-22 is a versatile alloy with superior overall corrosion resistance. C-22 exhibits outstanding resistance to pitting, crevice, and stress corrosion, reducing and oxidizing environments, chlorine, and solutions contains nitric acid, oxidizing acid, and chloride. Often used in a wide variety of chemical process applications.

HASTELLOY® alloy C-276  [(UNS N10276) Ni 57%, Mo 16%, Cr 15.5%, Fe 5.5%]

Particularly suitable for use in corrosive environments where reducing and oxidizing are common.  Resists localized attack, pitting and stress corrosion cracking.  In wide use in the pulp and paper industries, as well as pollution control and chemical processing.

 INCONEL® alloy 600 [(UNS N06600) Ni 76.0%, Cr 15.5%, Fe 8.0%]

Ideal for use in high-temperature environments (up to 2150° F) that also pose the threat of oxidizing, reducing and corrosion.  Offers superior resistance due to its high nickel and chromium content.  Because of these properties, it is often specified for nuclear steam generator equipment, heat treating equipment and furnace muffles.  Also used for electronic components and chemical and food processing.

MONEL® alloy 400  [(UNS N04400) Ni 66.5%, Cu 31.5%]

An extremely versatile alloy, used in a wide range of applications including electrical and electronic components, water heaters and heat exchangers, processing equipment, the petroleum industry, marine fixtures, valves and pumps.  Suitable for use across a wide range of temperatures and conditions, it offers excellent corrosion resistance, high strength and easy weldability.

Nickel 200/201  [(UNS N02200/N02201) Ni 99.6%, C 0.08%]

Well-suited to operating temperatures over 600° F, this commercially pure nickel product will resist a wide range of corrosives.  Because of its excellent mechanical characteristics, it has wide application in the electronic and aerospace industries.  Also suitable for chemical and caustic handling equipment and piping, magnetostrictive devices and food processing equipment.
