A Ni-Cr alloy known for its corrosion resistance and high temperature stability

Inconel® threaded rods, like Inconel 600, 601,625, 686, 718 & 725 threaded rods, are a family of nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloys used for their high strength at elevated temperatures and good corrosion resistance. Because of its high thermal stability, Inconel can be used in service temperatures ranging from cryogenic to 2200°F (982°C). The high alloy content of Inconel threaded rods enable it to withstand a wide variety of severe corrosive environments. In mild environments, such as the atmosphere, sea water, neutral salts, and alkaline media, there is almost no attack to Inconel threaded rods. In more severe corrosive environments the combination of nickel and chromium provides resistance to oxidizing chemicals, whereas the high nickel and molybdenum contents supply resistance to nonoxidizing environments.

Because Inconel threaded rods offer a good balance of corrosion resistance, temperature stability, toughness and strength they are often a material of choice for chemical processing, aerospace, marine, electronics and oil & gas.

Common Inconel Threaded Rod Grades

Inconel 600 

Alloy 600, UNS N06600, is a nickel-chromium alloy with good carburization and oxidation resistance through 2000°F. The alloy has long been used in the heat treating industry and Inconel 600 has useful resistance to dry Cl2 and HCl gases at moderately elevated temperatures. 

Specifications: AMS 5540, AMS 5665, ASME SB 166, ASME SB 167, ASME SB 168, ASTM B 166, ASTM B 167, ASTM B 168, EN 2.4816, UNS N06600, Werkstoff 2.4816

Inconel 625 

Inconel 625, UNS N06625, is the workhorse of the Inconel family and is one of the most common grades. It exhibits high creep-rupture strength and is oxidation resistant to 1800°F (982°C). Inconel 625 has excellent resistance to hot seawater, scrubber environments and reducing acids and this alloy resists a wide range of severely corrosive environments and is especially resistant to pitting and crevice corrosion. 

Specifications: AMS 5666, AMS 5837, ASME SB 443 Gr 1, ASME SB 446 Gr 1, ASTM B 443 Gr 1, ASTM B 446 Gr 1, EN 2.4856, ISO 15156-3, NACE MR0175-3, UNS N06625, Werkstoff 2.4856

Inconel 686 

Alloy 686, UNS N06686, is designed for outstanding corrosion resistance in a wide range of severe environments. The alloy is used in the most severe environments encountered in chemical processing, pollution control, pulp and paper production, and treatment of industrial and municipal waste. 

Specifications: ASTM B 462, ASTM B 564 / ASME SB 564, ASTM B 574 / ASME B 574, DIN 17752, DIN 17753, DIN 17754

Inconel 718 

Inconel 718, UNS N07718, is the most common grade of the hardenable Inconels. This precipitation-hardened nickel-chromium alloy combines outstanding corrosion resistance and high strength at elevated temperatures. The alloy is a about 2x as strong as Inconel 625 having excellent creep-rupture strength at temperatures to 1300°F (700°C) and usable up to 1800°F (982°C). Inconel 718 is often used in gas turbines, rocket motors, spacecraft, nuclear reactors, pumps, and tooling. 

SpecificationsAMS 5596, AMS 5662, AMS 5663, AMS 5832, ASME Case 2222-1, ASME SFA 5.14, ASTM B 637, ASTM B 670, EN 2.4668, GE B50TF14, GE B50TF15, UNS N07718, Werkstoff 2.4668

Inconel 718 Chemistry

Inconel 725 

Alloy 725, UNS N07725, nickel-chromium-molybdenum-niobium age-hardenable alloy that has essentially the same corrosion resistance as Inconel 625, but with a strength of that is twice that of annealed Inconel 625. The strength of this alloy is developed by heat treatment to achieve high ductility and toughness. The alloy is resistant to hydrogen embrittlement and stress-corrosion cracking as well.
