Fansteel 82 is a columbium base alloy having superior high temperature strength while retaining the good fabricability of pure columbium. Fansteel 82 exhibits superior resistance to oxidation at temperatures above 1800 F; however, a protective coating will be necessary except for only very short time applications. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and tensile properties as well as creep. It also includes information on high temperature performance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: Cb-3.
