A286 alloy provides high strength up to a temperature of 1300° F and corrosion resistance up to a constant temperature of 1500° F or an intermittent temperature of 1800° F. A286, which is a ductile, non-magnetic, iron-based alloy, can reach its highest strength level through solution heat treating and age hardening. Because it is a higher strength metal, greater pressure is required when forming. It is best to weld and form A286 in the solution treated condition. Before machining A286, it is best to solution treat and cold working the material first.
