Inconel 600

Inconel 600

Inconel 600 is a nickel-chromium alloy used for applications that require
corrosion and high temperature resistance. This nickel alloy was designed
for service temperatures from cryogenic to elevated temperatures in the
range of 2000° F. It is non-magnetic, has excellent mechanical properties,
and presents the desirable combination of high strength and good weldability
under a wide range of temperatures. The high nickel content in Inconel 600
enables it to retain considerable resistance under reducing conditions,
makes it resistant to corrosion by a number of organic and inorganic
compounds, gives it excellent resistance to chloride-ion stress-corrosion
cracking and also provides excellent resistance to alkaline solutions.
Typical applications of this nickel alloy include the chemical, pulp and
paper, aerospace, nuclear engineering and heat treating industries.
