Inconel 625 and Inconel 718

Inconel 625


Inconel 625 is a nickel alloy resistant to high temperature and corrosion. This type of material is characterised by high resistance to wear and tear and for the creation of finished parts boasting excellent tolerance to mechanical and thermal stress even when exposed oxidation-prone environments.

Inconel 718


Inconel 718 is a nickel alloy resistant to high temperatures (up to 700° C) and corrosion. This material is suitable for applications such as high temperature resistant parts of gas turbines and industrial installations, as well as for cryogenic applications.
