Difference Between Inconel 600 and 601

INCONEL 600

Nickel Alloy 600, also known as Inconel 600, is an extremely versatile nickel-chromium alloy capable of resisting oxidation in temperatures up to 2000 ºF (1093 ºC). Inconel 600 is a non-magnetic nickel-chromium-iron high temperature alloy with an excellent combination of high strength, hot and cold workability and high corrosion resistance. Inconel 600 has good high temperature strength up to 1150ºC and displays freedom from stress corrosion.
