Project Description

Alloy 20/20Cb-3 (UNS N08020)

Alloy 20/20Cb-3 (UNS N08020) is a nickel iron chromium alloy with additions of copper and molybdenum. It also contains niobium for stabilization against sensitization and resultant intergranular corrosion. The alloy has excellent resistance to general corrosion, pitting and crevice corrosion in chemicals containing chlorides and sulfuric, phosphoric and nitric acids. Used for tanks, piping, heat exchangers, pumps, valves and other process equipment.
