Materials like Inconel or Hastelloy X are examples of highly heat-resistant and corrosion resistant nickel-based alloys. In most cases, these alloys contain chrome, iron, niobium and molybdenum and other alloy components and they are often known as superalloys. Nickel-based alloys withstand higher temperatures than steels and they are also highly weldable. Their resistance to temperature is achieved through a mixture of dispersion hardening, precipitation hardening and solid solution strengthening.
Nickel-based alloys exhibit good mechanical characteristic values such as high tensile strength and good endurance strength. Inconel can be used at temperatures of up to 700 °C. Hastelloy X can even be used at temperatures of up to 1200 °C. This makes these alloys ideally suited for aerospace technologies and for turbine production.
Another area where nickel-based alloys are used is toolmaking. These alloys are also suitable for sustained heat treatment and mechanical post treatment.
