Haynes 242 Bars is an alloy unique for its combination of properties. It features a chemical composition of 49% cobalt, 18% chromium, 26% nickel, and 7% tungsten. This composition allows Haynes 242 to possess remarkable strength at temperatures between -423°F to 2100°F, enabling it to remain highly durable even when exposed to extreme heat or cold. Its strength and resistance also make Haynes 242 well-suited for aircraft parts and other components in critical operations where reliability is vital. Therefore, this alloy's chemical constitution provides Haynes 242 with the characteristics that make it a valuable material in many industrial applications today.

Haynes 242 bars are made from a nickel-based alloy that is almost exclusively used in high-temperature applications such as jet engines and parts of spacecraft. The material provides excellent corrosion, oxidation, and hot workability properties, making it highly resistant to temperatures up to 980°C (1800°F). Its superior strength, if exposed to shock and vibration, and its softness and elasticity make Haynes 242 Bars an ideal choice for applications requiring elevated temperatures. The bars also have good fracture toughness, making them an effective stress-absorbing material. Furthermore, their low coefficient of thermal expansion minimizes assembly differences due to temperature changes. These advantageous properties make 242 Haynes Bars suitable for short production runs because minimal tool modification is needed when switching orders or products. Overall, these materials are ideal for complex automotive components such as turbocharger housings and exhaust valves that require significant heat resistance and superb corrosion protection.
