A286 stainless steel bar offers high strength corrosion resistance.
A286 is often referred to as a 'superalloy' due to its combination of high tensile strength, corrosion resistance and precipitation hardenability. The material is used in the aircraft sector within engine and turbine parts and components as it works well in high-temperature applications and displays good corrosion and oxidation resistance. A286 is commonly available, solution and precipitation heat-treated, in bar form to AMS 5737 or AMS 5732 specifications.
The alloy is a nickel-chromium austenitic precipitation-hardened stainless steel that is predominantly iron-based. A286 provides high strength retention at elevated temperatures of 704°C (1300°F). Production is via the vacuum induction melting (VIM) or vacuum oxygen decarburisation (VOD) process. Once complete, the alloy undergoes remelting using vacuum arc or electro slag processes to finish the material.
A286 finds typical use in lower stress applications at high temperatures and provides good corrosion and oxidation resistance. The alloy also performs well in cryogenic environments. Jet engine turbines, afterburners, shafts and fasteners all utilise alloy A286.
We stock AMS 5737 and AMS 5732 specification bars in diameters from 0.5" diameter up to 6" diameter. However, even larger sizes are available with short lead times. As an MRO support company, we offer engineering raw materials from stock on rapid delivery times to keep your aircraft in the air.
