HAYNES®244 alloy

HAYNES® 244® Alloy offers a higher maximum use temperature than other low thermal expansion alloys currently available, including a 100-200°F (55-110°C) improvement over HAYNES® 242® alloy. The alloy is age-hardenable by formation of Ni2 (Cr,Mo,W) domains, which are structurally similar to the strengthening domains in 242® alloy. Judicious alloying with tungsten increased the thermal stability of these domains and lowered the coefficient of thermal expansion. Other important properties such as oxidation resistance and low-cycle fatigue performance are comparable or better than those of 242® alloy.
