There is a wide variety of different nickel base alloys to offer reasonable mechanical properties along with either corrosion or high temperature properties.
|Representative Alloys||Monel®, Inconel®, Hastelloy®, ILLIUM® G, ILLIUM® 98|
|Applications||Where maintenance or product purity is important. Well-suited to high temperature conditions|
|Limitations||Difficult for the inexperienced Foundry to produce|
|Typical Uses||Fluid handling systems, chemical processing, fresh and salt water applications|
|Machinability||Good to fair. Lower feeds and speeds generally|
|Corrosion Resistance||Good resistance to stress corrosion cracking. Some grades especially resistant to attack from hydrochloric acid; others to hydrofluoric acid|
