Introduction

Super alloys are metallic alloys used at high temperatures above 540ºC (1000ºF) where high surface stability and deformation resistance are mainly required. Three major classes of super alloys include iron-base, nickel-base and cobalt-base alloys. The iron-base super alloys are generally wrought alloys with stainless steel technology. Nickel-base and cobalt-base super alloys may be cast or wrought based on its composition or application. Super alloys are commonly forged, rolled to sheet or produced in various shapes. However, highly alloyed compositions are produced as castings.

The following datasheet will discuss in detail about Inconel 725™, which is age-hardenable and has high strength and corrosion resistance.
