General Properties
Alloy 20 is an iron-base, austenitic alloy with excellent corrosion resistance in a number of applications. When carefully compared to higher-cost alloys, Alloy 20 can be a cost-effective solution.

Applications

  • flue-gas desulfurization
  • chemical processing
  • food processing and storage
  •  pharmaceutical applications

 

Specifications

ASTM/ASME……….. UNS N08020

DIN…………………. .  2.4660

Resistance

  • Alloy 20 has exceptional resistance to sulfuric acid but the alloy shows useful resistance in phosphoric acid, nitric acid as well as in chloride environments.
  • Alloy 20 is an excellent option when chloride stress corrosion cracking is an issue and resists pitting and crevice corrosion

Weldability

  • Welding Alloy 20 is commonly performed via, TIG, MIG as well as submerged arc welding (SAW) using a matching filler metal.

Heat Treatment

  • Alloy 20 can be formed by either hot-working or cold-work using traditional methods. Hot forged material should be heated between 2100°F and 2250°F with careful temperature control insuring that the material not fall below 1800°F prior to forging.

After hot working, anneal the material by heating to 1725°F and 1850°F for a minimum of 30 minutes per inch of thickness followed by water quench.
