6 Moly Grades
6 Moly Grades are well suited for applications related to chemical processing, heat exchangers, desalinization and more. The most common 6 Moly grades for piping products are 254SMO (UNS S31254) and AL6XN (UNS NO8367). Plate materials are generally available in both grades from stock, enabling reduced manufacturing times.
- Grinding of OD/ID Weld Area
- Hydro Testing
- UT Testing
- Charpy Testing

Moly 6 alloys are known for their good thermal & electrical conducitivities, high density, high melting point, and greater stiffness than steel. These characteristics make it the ideal alloy for use in high temperatures, above 1100°C , which is higher than steels and nickel-based superalloys.
With its high levels of chromium, molybdenum, and nitrogen, 6 Moly alloys have excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals. These alloys are especially suited for high chloride environments such as brackish water, seawater, pulp mill bleach plants and other high chloride process streams. They provide a cost-efficient alternative to nickel-based alloys and titanium.
- High resistance to pitting, crevice and general corrosion.
- Very high resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking.
- 50% stronger than 300-series austenitic stainless steels.
- Excellent impact toughness.
- Excellent workability and weldability.
