NICKEL 600 per AMS 5665 Nickel Alloy, Corrosion and Heat Resistant, Bars, Forgings, and Rings, 74Ni – 15.5Cr – 8.0Fe
The AMS 5665 specification covers Nickel 600 corrosion and heat resistant nickel alloy in the form of bars, forgings, flash welded rings, and stock for forging or flash welded rings. Nickel Alloy 600 (N06600) is a nickel-chromium-iron alloy with good oxidation resistance at high temperatures and resistance to chloride-ion stress corrosion cracking corrosion by high-purity water, and caustic corrosion. Nickel 600 also has excellent mechanical properties and has a desirable combination of high strength and good workability. Used for furnace components, in chemical and food processing, in nuclear engineering and for the sparking electrodes.
