Alloy A-286 (660B) is special corrosion, oxidation and heat resistant, precipitation hardenable austenitic stainless steel. It is designed for long-term, high strength service up to 700°C. It is non-magnetic even after severe cold deformation. The alloy has good oxidation resistance in continuous service up to 800°C.
Alloy A-286 (660B) has good machinability and machines best in the precipitation-hardened condition when it has a machinability rating 45% that of AISI1212 free-cutting grade. The alloy is used mainly in the precipitation-hardened condition. The hardness is 248 HB min for precipitation-hardened grades but hardness must not exceed 330HB to meet the NACE MR0175 requirements. Samples must also meet the stress rupture requirements of a minimum elongation of 3% when tested at 650°C.
