Inconel bars are renowned for their exceptional resistance to oxidation and corrosion, making them well-suited for extreme environments with high levels of temperature and heat. When heated, Inconel forms a stable, thick, passivating oxide layer that protects the alloy’s surface from further attack.
Inconel bar stock is a corrosion-resistant, high-temperature superalloy that has been widely used in the aerospace industry for decades, and now finds application in the nuclear industry as well. It offers numerous advantages over other materials, such as low cost, high strength, heat and corrosion resistance, and erosion resistance.
Inconel round stock exhibits remarkable strength and can retain its structural integrity across a wide range of temperatures. This makes them ideal for high-temperature applications where steel and aluminum would succumb to creep caused by thermally-induced crystal vacancy. The high-temperature strength of Inconel is developed through precipitation hardening or solid solution strengthening.
Machining and shaping Inconel using traditional techniques can be challenging due to its rapid work hardening. After the initial machining pass, workpieces undergo plastic deformation and work hardening. This necessitates careful machining of age-hardened Inconels like Inconel 718 to minimize the number of required passes.
Inconel bars are highly sought after for their unique ability to resist carbonization and oxidation in high-temperature settings. This exceptional resistance to carbonization and oxidation makes them highly reliable in demanding applications.
Inconel round stock finds extensive applications across various industries. Some notable applications include:
Inconel bar stock is particularly favored in the aerospace industry due to its exceptional strength, heat resistance, and corrosion resistance. It is a high-quality material used in the production of stainless steel and nickel-based superalloys. Additionally, it finds application in heat exchangers and turbine blades.
Moreover, Inconel bar stock has a wide range of applications across industries, including aerospace, automotive, chemical processing, construction equipment manufacturing, power generation equipment manufacturing, and oil & gas exploration. Its versatility and properties make it an ideal choice for diverse applications.
