Frequently Asked Questions
What are nickel-based superalloys metal powder made of?
Nickel-based superalloys use Nickel as the base constituent and combine it with a variety of alloying metals such as chromium, cobalt, molybdenum, tungsten, titanium, and aluminum. The Inconel Alloy 718 is primarily composed of nickel, chromium, and iron with niobium and molybdenum in small quantities and some other trace elements.
How Is Inconel 718 Metal Powder Produced?
Inconel 718 is typically produced through a process known as gas atomization where a stream of liquid metal is atomized into fine droplets and then rapidly solidified, resulting in fine powder. Continuum’s high-quality Inconel 718 metal powder is, however, produced with 100% recycled metal, maintaining a circular supply chain model.
What is Inconel Alloy 718 used for?
Inconel 718 finds high demand in industries where high-temperature and corrosion-resistant properties are a requisite. Owing to its exceptional performance in high temperatures, it’s utilized in the production of components such as turbine discs, blades, and fasteners in the aerospace industry and engine components in the automotive industry. It’s also used for wellhead components in the oil and gas industries and in the chemical processing industry.
Is Inconel 718 stronger than steel?
Yes, Inconel Alloy 718 often surpasses the strength of many types of stainless steel at high temperatures as it has been specifically engineered to withstand elevated temperatures and corrosive environments. Further heat treatments also contribute to the higher tensile and yield strengths of this nickel-based superalloys metal powder.
