Background

Alloy Wire International Ltd. is a U.K. wire manufacturer specialising in the production of high performance alloys, mainly Nickel Alloys, but including Cobalt and Titanium Alloys.

These alloys might be used in any environment that requires resistance to heat and corrosion but where the mechanical properties of the metal must be retained.

Inconel X-750 – Nickel-Chromium Alloy

Inconel X-750 is a Nickel-Chromium alloy made precipitation hardenable by additions of Aluminium and Titanium, having creep-rupture strength at high temperatures to about 700°C (1290°F).

It is widely used for high temperature conditions but is not as strong as Nimonic 90.
