AL29-4C alloy is a superferritic stainless steel designed by Allegheny Ludlum for extreme resistance to corrosive condensates created by partially or fully condensing natural gas and propane-fired heating appliances, where cool flue gases are vented under pressure. The Canadian Gas Research Institute found that test results showed AL29-4C to be one of the "most corrosion resistant alloys of 20 candidate stainless steels evaluated for resistance to chloride induced corrosion in condensing and partially condensing gas-fired appliances."
