HIGH CORROSION RESISTANCE
ARCAP alloys are corrosion resistant to the majority of chemical and physical environments. NFS can provide data for the corrosion resistance of ARCAP alloys via our manufacturing partners Clal. In particular ARCAP alloys have a very high resistance to scaling and clogging of pipes by hard water and blocking of pipes used to transport powder products such as sodium aluminate, cement etc.
HIGH MECHANICAL PROPERTIES
In annealed temper ARCAP alloys have an elongation up to 45% which allows deep drawing. In spring temper the ultimate tensile strength is above 800 MPa/mm2.
A detector sensitive to 1/10 of nanotesla placed at less than 1 mm from ARCAP alloys will not show any magnetic interference. This non magnetism is kept even at very low temperatures (measured at 4.2°K)
Temperature variations have almost no effect on the resistivity of ARCAP alloys in particular Grade AP4.
EXCELLENT BEHAVIOUR AT LOW TEMPERATURE
At low temperatures the mechanical properties of ARCAP alloys are improved. A cryogenic application shows that the ultimate tensile strength and the yield strength increase without any diminution of the elongation or the impact strength.
VERY EASY TO PROCESS
ARCAP alloys are easily processed whether by Forging, Stamping, Deep drawing, Machining, Welding or Brazing and they are also easily plated.
