Inconel 600 Nickel-chromium Superalloy Forgings


Alloy 600 summary

lnconel 600 is a nickel-chromium alloy designed for use from cryogenic to very high temperatures in the range of 2000 °F (1093 °C). It is a standard engineering material for applications which require resistance to corrosion, oxidation, and elevated temperatures so it is used in a variety of corrosion resisting applications. The high nickel content of the material provides exceptional resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking. The chromium content of Alloy 600 grants the alloy resistance to sulfur compounds while also providing resistance under conditions where oxidation at high temperatures are a concern, or when the metal will be exposed to corrosive solutions. Nickel alloy 600 also has excellent resistance to nitrogen at high temperatures. This alloy can only be hardened and strengthened through cold work, however a wide variety of desirable mechanical properties can be obtained by combining cold working with thermal treatments.

Applications for inconel 600

The alloy's strength and oxidation resistance at high temperatures thanks to its nickel and chromium content make it useful for many applications in the heat-treating industry. It is also a standard material of construction for nuclear reactors because the alloy has excellent corrosion resistance to high-purity water.
