Inconel® alloy 601

UNS N06601
W.Nr 2.4851

Applications

Furnace fixtures and mesh belts.

Description

Inconel® 601 is a Nickel-Chromium-Iron corrosion and heat resistant alloy. The aluminum content gives this alloy excellent resistance to high temperature oxidation. Inconel® 601 is not age-hardenable and is only strengthened by cold working.
Inconel® 601 can operate from cryogenic temperatures up to 645°F (340°C).

Industries Supplied

Thermal Processing, Chemical Processing, Power Generation and Aerospace.
