Nickel Alloy Castings

There is a wide variety of different nickel base alloys to offer reasonable mechanical properties along with either corrosion or high temperature properties.

Alloy 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
Weldability Generally good
Corrosion Resistance Good resistance to stress corrosion cracking. Some grades especially resistant to attack from hydrochloric acid; others to hydrofluoric acid
