Thermal Stability

HAYNES® 556® exhibits reasonable retained ductility after long term thermal exposure at intermediate temperatures. It does not exhibit significant sigma phase formation even after 16,000 hours exposure at 1000 to 1600°F(540 to 870°C). Principal phases precipitated from solid solution are carbides and carbonitrides.
