Super alloys have good creep and oxidation resistance. They are also known as high performance alloys, and can be formed in different shapes. Work hardening, precipitation hardening, and solid-solution hardening are performed for strengthening the super alloys. These alloys have the capcity to function at very high temperatures and severe mechanical stress, and also where high surface stability is required.
