Nickel-base alloys are used in many applications where they are subjected to harsh environments at high temperatures. These materials are designated to provide unique strength and/or corrosion properties at elevated temperatures, up to 1200°C.
Major attributes include properties such as high strength, high creep resistance, resistance to softening, or resistance to metal loss at high temperature from oxidation, sulfidation, or carburization.
Examples of heat resistant nickel alloys:
Alloy 600 Alloy 718 Alloy 800/800 HT
Alloy 601 Alloy DS Alloy 75
An extending attribute of nickel alloys is its super corrosion resistant behavior. Nickel and nickel-base alloys are vitally important to modern industry because of their ability to withstand a wide variety of severe operating conditions involving corrosive environments.
These alloys are intended for applications in the chemical processing, petroleum refining, marine, heat treating, pollution, and waste control industries where other metals may not provide adequate corrosion protection.
Examples of corrosion resistant nickel alloys:
Alloy 200/201 Alloy K-500 Alloy 825
Alloy 400 Alloy 625 Alloy C-276
