Nickel Inconel 600

Inconel 600 is a nickel-chromium alloy known for its oxidation resistance at high temperatures and good resistance in carburizing and chloride containing environments. It is normally used for applications which require resistance to corrosion and heat. It also has high strength and good workability. This material is extensively used in the chemical industry due to its strength and corrosion resistance. This grade is commonly found in nuclear reactors, steam generators and chemical manufacturing components.
