Nickel Alloy: Inconel 600

 

Penn Stainless inventory includes Inconel 600 grade (UNS N06600) in stock and custom tubular products.

GENERAL PROPERTIES

Alloy 600 is a nonmagnetic, nickel-based high temperature alloy possessing an excellent combination of high strength, hot and cold workability, and resistance to ordinary form of corrosion.
This alloy also displays good heat resistance and freedom from aging or stress corrosion throughout the annealed to heavily cold worked condition range.

 

APPLICATIONS

Some typical applications are:

  • Barge and tank truck liners
  • Carburizing atmospheres
  • Ethylene dichloride crackers
  • Furnace trays, mufflers, hangers
  • Gasoline stabilizer production

DIN……………………….  1.4529

 

 

CORROSION RESISTANCE

  • The high chromium content of alloy 600 raises its oxidation resistance considerably above that of pure nickel, while its high nickel content provides good corrosion resistance under reducing conditions.
  • This alloy exhibits high levels of resistance to stress and salt water, exhaust gases, and most organic acids and compounds.

WELDABILITY

  • Alloy 600 can be joined by the usual welding , brazing, and soldering process.

 

HEAT TREATMENT

  • not an age hardening alloy
  • cold working is the only available means of hardening.
  • Softening by annealing begins at about 1600°F (871°C)

since the rate of cooling has no effect on the softening, the material may be water quenched or air cooled.
