INCONEL alloy 718
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
postweld cracking. The alloy has excellent creep-rupture strength at
temperatures to 1300F (700C). Used in gas turbines, rocket motors,
spacecraft, nuclear reactors, pumps, and tooling. INCONEL alloy 718SPF is
a special version of INCONEL alloy 718, designed for superplastic forming.
