Resistance to Grain Growth

HAYNES® 230® alloy exhibits excellent resistance to grain growth at high temperatures. As a consequence of its very stable primary carbides, 230® alloy can be exposed at temperatures as high as 2200°F (1204°C) for up to 24 hours without exhibiting significant grain growth. Materials such as HAYNES® 188 alloy or HASTELLOY® X alloy exhibit greater grain growth under such conditions, as would most iron-, nickel-, or cobalt-base alloys and stainless steels.
