Because of its resistance to reducing and oxidising media, C-22 can be used in environments where "upset" conditions are likely.
It has excellent weldability and corrosion resistance as consumable filler wires and electrodes. The alloy has shown success as a filler wire in numerous applications.
when other corrosion-resistant wires have failed.Because of its ductility, C-22 is easily cold-formed. Because the alloy is stiffer than austenitic stainless steel, more energy is needed. Olsen cup depth of 0.49" in 0.28" thick, 2050° F heat-treated, rapid quenched sheet.
