ALLEGHENY LUDLUM E-BRITE 26-1 ALLOY is a low-carbon, low-nitrogen ferritic stainless steel made by a vacuum refining process. It provides: (1) Excellent resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride-containing environments, (2) Excellent resistance to chloride stress-corrosion cracking, (3) Resistance to intergranular corrosion, (4) Resistance to a wide variety of corrosive environments, and (5) Improved toughness and ductility after welding. Its applications include equipment for handling caustic, organic acids, nitric acid, bleach solutions, urea and chloride containing cooling waters. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, microstructure, hardness, and tensile properties as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on low temperature performance and corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: SS-360.
