Applications of INCONEL Alloy 22

19 November 2021

Extremely resistant to aqueous and general corrosion, crevice corrosion, intergranular attack, pitting, and stress corrosion cracking, INCONEL alloy 22 is tough and versatile even at elevated temperatures. Nickel-based and with 22% chromium, alloy 22 is fully austenitic. This means that it’s non-magnetic and does not harden in response to heat treatment. Nickel also helps to protect the alloy against corrosion by halides, such as chlorides and fluorides, when subject to extreme heat.

Product Focus: INCOLOY Alloy 925

25 October 2021

Part of the INCOLOY family, Alloy 925 is a nickel-iron-chromium alloy. It’s age-hardenable, and like all high-performance nickel alloys (superalloys), 925 is tough and versatile, and continues to perform well in hot, cold, and corrosive conditions. Nickel alloys are a safe, durable and cost-effective choice for use in harsh environments. They’re well-suited to high-pressure, high-stakes sectors such as the aerospace, chemical and petrochemical industries.

Predicting Metal Stress-Cracking: The Future of Working with Metal Alloys

14 October 2021

In high-stress conditions, even the strongest and most durable metal component will eventually be prone to cracking. While precautions can be taken, we haven’t always understood exactly how these cracks develop or when a component is likely to become unreliable. And if a component does fail, the consequences can be terrible.
