Haynes® 230 is a nickel-chromium-tungsten-molybdenum alloy, designed to combine excellent high temperature strength, oxidation resistance (up to 2100 °F), nitriding resistance and long term stability. Alloy 230 is a solid-solution-strengthened material which combines excellent high-temperature strength with good fabricability at room temperature. It is particularly effective for very long-term applications at temperatures of 1200 °F (649 °C) or more, and is capable of outlasting stainless steels and nickel alloys by as much as 100 to 1 depending upon the temperature.

Additional Properties

Corrosion Resistance

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 - Contact Ulbrich Sales for more information.

Wire 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 for custom wire finishes.

Heat Treatment

Haynes® 230 cannot be hardened heat treating.
