- Hastelloy set screw features and benefits
Hastelloy® set screws are in stock and available now - such as Hastelloy C276, which is generally considered a versatile and highly corrosion resistant alloy. Hastelloy screws have excellent corrosion resistance in both oxidizing and reducing media which makes it well suited for a variety of strong corrosive applications. Hastelloy screws also have exceptional resistance to both sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid.
Because Hastelloy set screws resist some of the most severe media, Hastelloy screws are often utilized in chemical processing applications where acid chlorides, solvents, formic and acetic acids, acetic anhydride, wet chlorine gas, hypochlorites, chlorine solutions and phosphoric acid are used. For chemical processing applications, Hastelloy C276 is the most common grade and one of the most corrosion resistant nickel alloys - exceeding that of most other nickel alloy grades like Inconel or Monel.
Hastelloy is available in several grades. For more indepth information on these specific grades, visit our specific web pages or contact one of our engineering experts:

Hastelloy set screws are unique in that they have no screw head, meaning that they have no protruding part past the threaded shaft. They are thread only and are available with a socket or slotted driver insert at one end. Set screws are used to secure an object within or against another object. Typically they secure a rotating part such as a gear or shaft. Hastelloy set screws are driven through a threaded hole in the rotating part until it is tight against the inner object, preventing from moving relative to the outer object. Set screws are available with various points depending on the application.
This is the most commonly used set screw and is identified by a cup-shaped indentation on one end. Hastelloy cup points are typically used for a quick, semi-permanent or permanent applications where it is acceptable to cut the cup point edge of the screw.
A cone point is easily identifiable by its sharp cone-shaped point – just like an ice cream cone. Hastelloy cone point set screws deliver the strongest clamping force due to the deep penetration of the point. As a result they are used for permanent assembly.
The cheapest and simplest of the set screw point styles, this screw has a flat surface on the bottom of the screw. This type is used when you need the ability to frequently change parts and require minimal shaft deformation.
C276 alloy, UNS N10276, is the most widely used and versatile, corrosion resistant alloy. Very good resistance to reducing, and mildly oxidizing corrosives. Excellent stress corrosion cracking resistance with very good resistance to localized attack.

B3 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.

B3 alloy, UNS N10675, is specifically designed to deal with very aggressive hydrochloric acid (HCl), hyrdrobromic acid (HBr) and sulfuric acids (H2SO4) as well as acetic, formic and phosphoric acids. Additionally Hastelloy B3 has improved structural integrity over B2. However B3 has little chromium, and it should NOT be used with oxidizing media in the presence of salts.

C22 alloy, UNS N06022, has better overall corrosion resistance in oxidizing corrosives than C-276 and Inconel 625 alloys due to the higher chromium content. Outstanding resistance to localized corrosion and excellent resistance to stress corrosion cracking. This alloy has limited availability and can be made into fastener in larger diameters only (1/2" and greater in size).

C2000 alloy, UNS N06200, is a corrosion resistant alloy with excellent resistance to uniform corrosion in oxidizing or re-ducing environments. Due to the addition of copper and the high content of chromium, it has enhanced corrosion resistance to sulfuric acid and process streams contaminated with ferric ions. In addition it has excellent resistance to stress corrosion cracking and superior resistance to localized corrosion as compared to C-276 alloy. This alloy has limited availability and can be made into sizes only 1/2" and greater is size for fasteners.
