Alloy 600 Sheet & Coil - AMS 5540 - N06600 Inconel 600®

Inconel Alloy® 600 is a nickel-chromium alloy designed for use at cryogenic temperatures and up to 2000˚F (1093˚C). The high nickel content of the alloy provides good resistance to reducing environments, while the chromium content provides resistance to weaker oxidizing conditions. The high nickel content of the Inconel® 600 alloy provides exceptional resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking.  It is often used in the chemical industry, heat treating industry, electrical, nuclear and aeronautical fields. 

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. Nickel Alloy 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 2000ºF (1093˚C).
