Inconel® alloy 601

UNS N06601
W.Nr 2.4851

Applications

Petrochemical processing, industrial furnace components, gas turbine components.

Description

Inconel® 601 is a general purpose Nickel-Chromium-Iron alloy for applications requiring good resistance to heat and corrosion. The most important property is its outstanding resistance to high temperature oxidation even under cyclical heating and cooling. Inconel® 601 also has good resistance to aqueous corrosion, has high mechanical strength, and is readily formed, machined, and welded. Age-hardening treatments are not required, as Inconel 601® is hardened and strengthened through cold work only. 

Industries Supplied

Chemical Processing, Thermal Processing, Aerospace, Pollution Control, and Power Generation.
