Inconel 600

Inconel 600 is a nickel-chromium alloy used in chemical industry and the automotive engine, aeroengine and airframe sectors. Controlled chemical composition limits are applied in the nuclear industry to eliminate the risk of stress-corrosion cracking by high purity water containing chloride ions. 

The addition of chromium provides superior corrosion resistance in acidic environments, compared to a pure nickel, while allowing the material to maintain corrosion resistance in a reducing state and exhibit superior corrosion resistance to alkaline solutions. Inconel 600 can be used in solutions of magnesium chloride because of its exceptional resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking. It has exceptional strength at working temperatures up to 2000°F (1093°C).
