This alloy is also having very brilliant resistance to the pitting and the cervice corrosion. This alloy is also having the contribution of some of the metals like nickel, chromium, and molybdenum. This is also having stainless steel and carbon steel. This is good even for the operability for the out of position welding. This is also good resister for the stress-corrosion corrosion. It is also resistive to the oxidizing aqueous media which includes the wet chlorine attack. This alloy wires and rods are good for the overlay and cladding of the carbon steel as it is having good resistance towards the preferential corrosive attack towards the corrosive media.
This metal also resists the corrosive effect of harmful gases and solutions like the wet chlorine gas, hypochlorite and chlorine dioxide solutions. It is having the specifications as AWS A5.14 ERNiCrMo-4, ASME-SFA-5.14 ERNiCrMo-4, and ASME IX F-43. The standard size of the Hastelloy welding rod/ welding wire is 36 inches that are 914 mm in length, but it can also be increased or decreased according to the customer requirement.
