Technical Information for Nickel 718
Nickel 718, Also known as Inconel 718, is a precipitation-hardenable nickel-chromium alloy also containing significant amounts of iron, niobium and molybdenum along with lesser amounts of aluminum and titanium.
It combines corrosion resistance and high strength with outstanding weldability, including resistance to post-weld cracking. The alloy has excellent creep-rupture strength at temperatures to 1300°F (700°C)
Advantages of Using Nickel 718
NICKEL 718 exhibits high yield tensile and creep-rupture properties at temperatures up to 1300ºF and oxidation resistance to 1800ºF
APPLICATIONS OF NICKEL 718
INCONEL 718 (UNS N07718) otherwise known as Nickel 718 is used in applications that require high strength such as parts for jet engines and high speed airframe parts such as wheels, buckets, spacers and high temperature bolts and fasteners.
