Inconel

Fastener Solutions is an Inconel supplier offering this hard working alloy in a wide variety of materials and coatings for a range of industries. Inconel alloys, also aptly named superalloys are nickel-based and exhibit traits such as high resistance to corrosion, oxidation, carburization, pitting, crevice, corrosion cracking, and high-temperature strength.

Chemical processing, nuclear, petrochemical, aerospace and marine industries widely use these superalloys due to the fact they are corrosion-resistant. Inconel is widely used in extreme environments where tremendous heat and corrosion resistance is paramount to the integrity of the end product.

Characteristics

  • Resistance to acids, such as sulfuric, phosphoric, nitric, and hydrochloric.
  • High resistance to oxidation at elevated temperatures.
  • Almost completely free from chloride-induced stress corrosion cracking.
  • Excellent mechanical properties at both extremely low and extremely high temperatures.

Applications

  • Chemical and petrochemical processing.
  • Flare stacks on offshore oil platforms or components where exposure to high mechanical stress and seawater are required.
  • Gas turbines and rocket motors/engines.
  • Pollution control equipment.
  • Nuclear reactor components.

Chemistry

70% nickel, 12% chromium, 2% iron.
