This article provides the corrosion data for materials in hydrofluoric acid (HF) and anhydrous hydrogen fluoride (AHF). These materials include carbon and low-alloy steels, austenitic stainless steels, nickel-rich austenitic stainless steels, nickel and nickel-base alloys, copper alloys, precious metals, and non-metals. The article also discusses the hydrogen blistering and stress-corrosion cracking of carbon steels in high-temperature HF and AHF.
