Alloy 600 Nickel Sheet & Coil - AMS 5540, UNS N06600 Inconel


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 alloy provides exceptional resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking.

600 is a non-magnetic, austenitic alloy with a high nickel content. This alloy 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).
