Alloy 230 Description
Alloy 230 is a nickel-chromium-tungsten-molybdenum alloy which combines excellent high temperature strength, oxidation resistance (up to 2100°F), nitriding resistance and long term stability. It is particularly effective for very long-term applications at temperatures of 1200°F (649°C) or more and is capable of outlasting stainless steels and nickel alloys by as much as 100 to 1 depending upon the temperature.Alloy 230 is a solid-solution-strengthened material which combines excellent high-temperature strength with good fabricability at room temperature.

Alloy 230 can be cold rolled to achieve the temper properties required by specific customers and/or manufacturing requirements. Contact Ulbrich Wire for details.
Refer to NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) for recommendations.
Standard Wire Finishes
Extra Clean: Extra clean is also referred to as “bright annealed” or “bright annealed and cold rolled”
Grease (round wire only): Drawn in a heavy grease produces an “Ultra bright” finish for decorative applications
Soap (round wire only): Soap is used as a lubricant in the drawing process and is not removed. It acts as a lubricant during customer part forming operation. A soap finish is available in tempered products.
Plated: Many plating options are available.
∗Special finishes are available: Contact Ulbrich Wire Sales with special finish and plating requests.
Cut to lengths
Alloy 230 cannot be hardened heat treating
