Osprey® 718 nickel alloy is an age-hardenable nickel-chromium superalloy characterized by high strength combined with high corrosion resistance. The alloy has reliable and consistent mechanical properties at elevated temperatures up to ~650°C/~923°F. It is typically used in jet and gas turbines and in oil and gas applications. Osprey® 718 is an alloy of the same type as Inconel® 718.

  • High strength
  • High corrosion resistance
  • Heat treatable
  • Suitable for temperatures up to ~650°C/~923°F
  • Ideal for Laser Powder Bed Fusion

Pure, Gas Atomized 718 Nickel Alloy

718 nickel superalloy metal powder from Sandvik is manufactured through either induction melting under Vacuum Inert Gas Atomization (VIGA) or melting under argon prior to Inert Gas Atomization (IGA). The result is a pure metal powder with a spherical morphology, consistent microstructure, good flow characteristics, and high packing density. This powder also boasts a low oxygen content and low impurity levels for a metallurgically clean product. This 15-45um cut of Osprey® 718 nickel alloy is ideal for Laser Powder Bed Fusion technology.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is nickel alloy 718?

Osprey® 718 is a nickel superalloy primarily composed of 50% nickel, 17%-21% chromium, iron, and other trace elements such as molybdenum, niobium, manganese, and silicone. It’s a precipitation-hardenable alloy with high strength and resistance to corrosion, high temperatures, and post-weld cracking.

What’s the difference between Osprey® 718 and Inconel® 718?

Osprey® 718 and Inconel® 718 are both nickel alloys containing significant amounts of chromium and iron along with other trace elements. Both share a similar composition, with the only difference being the manufacturer. Osprey® 718 is produced by Sandvik whereas Inconel® 718 is produced by Special Metals.

What are the uses of 718 nickel alloy?

718 Ni alloy is typically used in environments that have elevated temperatures and are corrosive as it possesses strong mechanical properties and resistance to oxidation and corrosion. Typical applications include jet and gas turbine components and combustion chambers in aerospace.

Can a nickel superalloy be heat-treated?

Yes, heat treatments are recommended for enhancing the mechanical properties of Ni superalloys with the most common methods being solution annealing followed by rapid cooling and aging or precipitation hardening at lower temperatures. This results in the final product being significantly stronger.
