Inconel 600

Alloy Inconel 600

Principal Design Features: A general purpose structural engineering material for use at high temperatures where strength, stability, and durability are important. The alloy also has very good corrosion resistance. When considering this alloy, also investigate Alloy 690, which doubles the chromium content, to improve stress corrosion cracking capabilities.

Partial List of Applications: Heaters, heat exchangers, chemical process equipment, heat treat furnace components and fixtures and gas turbine components.
