600 / 601

Inconel 600 (UNS N06600) and Inconel 601 (UNS N06601) are nickel-chromium-iron alloys with high resistance to oxidation and corrosion in high temperature environments.

Inconel 600 (UNS N06600) and Inconel 601 (UNS N06601) are nickel-chromium-iron alloys that offer excellent resistance to oxidation and corrosion in high temperature environments. These alloys are widely used in various industries such as petrochemical, aerospace, and power generation due to their high resistance to heat and corrosive environments.

Inconel 600 has a composition of nickel (72%), chromium (14-17%), iron (6-10%), and small amounts of aluminum, carbon, and titanium. This combination provides the alloy with excellent resistance to high temperature oxidation and carburization.

Inconel 601 has a slightly higher chromium content (up to 21%) and additional aluminum in its composition, which provides enhanced resistance to high temperature oxidation and corrosion, as well as improved resistance to stress corrosion cracking.

Both alloys have good mechanical properties, including high strength and toughness, making them suitable for use in a variety of high temperature applications. In addition, they have good formability and weldability, making them easy to fabricate and install.

Note: The exact chemical and mechanical properties may vary depending on the manufacturer and specific product grade. The above values are typical ranges and should not be used as a basis for design. Consult the manufacturer's data sheet for more information.
