Machinability of VDM Alloy 22 Plates

Nicrofer 5621 hMoW should be machined in the solution-treated condition. As the alloy exhibits a high work-hardening rate only low cutting speeds should be used compared with low-alloyed standard austenitic stainless steels. Tools should be engaged at all times. An adequate depth of cut is important in order to cut below the previously formed work-hardened zone.

Corrosion properties of VDM Alloy 22 Plates

The chemical composition of Nicrofer 5621 hMoW has been designed to give it outstanding corrosion resistance in as wide a range of media as possible, both oxidizing and reducing. The high chromium content of the alloy makes it particularly suitable for oxidizing conditions, including wet chlorine gas, hypochlorite solutions or oxidizing acids. It is remarkably resistant to localized attack by halide ions, even under severe conditions of low pH and high temperatures. It resists attack in media contaminated by oxidizing chlorides such as ferric chloride or cupric chloride. Nicrofer 5621 hMoW is also resistant to many reducing media.
