ME 4133/6133 Mechanical Metallurgy
AL-6XN and its Processing, Structure, Properties, and Performance
The material which was selected for our project is AL-6XN Stainless Steel. One of the benefits of this material is its resistance to corrosion. The chemical composition of AL-6XN makes it resistant to many acids and salt solutions, making it a very good selection for piping. Because AL-6XN is metallic, it does not require special equipment or techniques during installation like many common polymers such as PVDF, PTFE, TPE, or PVC, making it a cost effective substitute for those materials.
