Inconel 718 properties pdf
How Inconel 718 is used in aerospace? 718 Nickel Alloy - Inconel® 718 - AMS 5662 - UNS N07718 Nickel Alloy 718, frequently called Inconel ® 718, is a precipitation hardenable corrosion and heat- resistant nickel alloy available in bars, forgings, sheets and plates. AMS 5662 and AMS 5663 limit sizes 10” and less between parallel sides with maximum cross- section area of 78. What is Inconel and where can I buy it. What is Incoloy 718? Inconel is typically used in applications where high temperatures are present due to a thick, stable passivating oxide layer which is formed when Inconel is heated. This layer protects the Inconel' s surface making it resistant to heat. Inconel has a high resistance to corrosion, pressure and oxidation. Inconel 718 is a vacuum melted ( double or triple melted for cleanliness) precipitation- hardening nickel alloy. It maintains its high strength, oxidation and corrosion resistance while maintaining its superior ductility under extreme environments. Tensile Characteristics of Inconel 718 Different proprietary heat processes are used for Inconel alloy 718 on the base of needed features. The heating methods are often extended to meet the demand of clients.
Inconel 718 is commonly used for cryogenic storage tanks, downhole shafts and wellhead parts. Several applications of inconel in aerospace include: The Space Shuttle used four Inconel studs to secure the solid rocket boosters to the launch platform, eight total studs supported the entire weight of the ready to fly Shuttle system.
