Corrosion Resistance of Nickel-Containing Alloys in Hydrofluoric Acid, Hydrogen Flouride and Flourine (443)

Presents the corrosion-resistant characteristics of nickel and nickel-containing alloys in hydrofluoric acid, hydrogen fluoride, fluorine and some fluorine-containing compounds, information helpful in selecting materials of construction in plants handling these chemicals. Hydrofluoric acid, hydrogen fluoride and fluorine readily react with many metals to form metallic fluoride films which, in the case of high-nickel alloys, tend to be protective to further reactions. This characteristic makes nickel-containing alloys useful for the handling of fluorine compounds. Reports extensive corrosion data for laboratory and plant exposures, and industrial applications of several nickel-containing alloys.
