Patent Number: 8,501,086

Title: Nickel based alloy

Abstract: A Ni based alloy, which consists of by mass percent, C.ltoreq.0.03%, Si: 0.01 to 0.5%, Mn: 0.01 to 1.0%, P.ltoreq.0.03%, S.ltoreq.0.01%, Cr: not less than 20% to less than 30%, Ni: more than 40% to not more than 60%, Cu: more than 2% to not more than 5.0%, Mo: 4.0 to 10%, Al: 0.005 to 0.5% and N: more than 0.02% to not more than 0.3%, with the balance being Fe and impurities, and the expression of "0.5 Cu+Mo.gtoreq.6.5" is satisfied, has excellent corrosion resistance equivalent to that of Ni based alloys having high Mo contents, such as Hastelloy C22 and Hastelloy C276, in severe corrosive environments containing reducing acids, such as hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid, together with excellent workability. Therefore, it can be suitably used as a low-cost material for various kinds of structural members.
