Hastelloy® C-4 can be cold worked to various tempers. Contact Ulbrich Technical Service for additional information.
Refer to NACE (National Associate of Corrosion Engineers) for recommendations.
#1 - Hot rolled annealed and descaled. It is available in strip, foil and ribbon. It is used for applications where a smooth decorative finish is not required.
#2D - Dull finish produced by cold rolling, annealing and descaling. Used for deep drawn parts and those parts that need to retain lubricants in the forming process. #2B - Smooth finish produced by cold rolling, annealing and descaling. A light cold rolling pass is added after anneal with polished rolls giving it a brighter finish than 2D.
#BA - Bright annealed cold rolled and bright annealed
#CBA - Course bright annealed cold rolled matte finish and bright anneal
#2 - Cold Rolled
#2BA- Smooth finish produced by cold rolling and bright annealing. A light pass using highly polished rolls produces a glossy finish. A 2BA finish may be used for lightly formed applications where a glossy finish is desired in the formed part. Polished - Various grit finish for specific polish finished requirements.
* Not all finishes are available for all alloys - Consult Sales for applicable finishes.
XC - Extra Clean Bright Annealed or Bright Annealed and Cold Rolled Grease - Ultra bright finish (for decorative applications) Soap - Soap coating on tempered wire to act as lubricant.
* Contact Ulbrich Wire with special finish requests.
Hastelloy® C-4 is non hardenable by heat treatment.

Hastelloy® C-4 is a grade of Hastelloy® which is a nickel-molybdenum alloy. There are many different grades of Hastelloy®, which includes C-4. Grades of Hastelloy® have each been optimized for a specific purpose. Molybdenum makes Hastelloy® harder and stronger at high temperatures. This alloying element and the characteristics it imbues into the material also makes it great for welding applications. These nickel alloys are easily fabricated and formed. They also exhibit good ductility and are able to be cold worked.
All grades of Hastelloy® are considered to be a corrosion resistant alloy because each grade exhibits superior resistance to various corrosive environments. Hastelloy® has outstanding resistance to highly oxidizing corrosives such as oxidizing salts and reducing agents, making it a great alloy to specify for applications used in moderate to severe corrosive environments.
