Description

NI-SPAN-C® Alloy 902 is a precipitation hardenable nickel-iron-chromium alloy with a thermoelastic coefficient that can be controlled by the amount of cold work and heat treatment temperature to fit a specific application’s needs. Alloy 902 also has low magnetostrictive properties appropriate for specific applications and has been successfully utilized at cryogenic temperatures.
