MATERIALS FOR EXHAUST SYSTEMS

Type I aluminized steel (having a coating of aluminum, 8-10% silicon, and 3% iron) and Type 409 stainless steel (11% chromium, 0.5% titanium, balance iron) are the first material choices above uncoated SAE 1010 carbon steel for exhaust systems. Corrosion and oxidation data indicates that useful temperatures of 1000 degree F. are possible. Mechanical strength, forming properties and metallographic analyses of exhaust pipes and catalytic converters are presented to illustrate the comparative nature of these and other alternative materials.
