Hastelloy B2 fasteners and flanges are mostly utilized for their excellent resistance to reducing environments like hydrogen chloride gas, sulfuric, acetic and phosphoric acids. Like other Hastelloy alloys, B2 fasteners can be used in the as-welded condition because they resist the formation of grain-boundary carbide precipitates in the weld heat-affected zone. It is recommended that B2 fasteners not be utilized between 1000° F and 1600° F because of a reduction in the ductility.

- Excellent resistance to hydrochloric acid in all concentrations and temperatures, as well as a wide range of organic acids.
- Excellent resistance to pitting, stress corrosion cracking and to knife-line and heat-affected zone attack.
- Good resistance to pure sulfuric acid and a number of non-oxidizing acids.
- Poor corrosion resistance to oxidizing environments. B2 fasteners and flanges are not recommended for use in oxidizing media or in the presence of ferric or cupric salts. These salts may develop when hydrochloric acid comes in contact with iron and copper, causing premature corrosion failure.
B2 nickel alloy, UNS N10665, resistance to hydrochloric acid and other strongly reducing chemicals but has poor corrosion resistance to oxidizing chemicals and in the presence of ferric or cupric salts. In addition, Hastelloy B2 has excellent resistance to pitting and stress corrosion cracking. However B2 has little chromium, and it should NOT be used with oxidizing media in the presence of salts.
