Super alloys or high performance alloys are of three types namely iron-based, cobalt-based and nickel-based alloys. These alloys can be strengthened by precipitation hardening, solid-solution hardening and work hardening methods.
Super alloys contain good oxidation and creep resistance and are available in varied shapes. These alloys can function under high mechanical stress and high temperatures and also in places that require high surface stability.
Super alloy 35N is a cobalt-nickel-chromium alloy. This alloy is age-hardenable and also contains molybdenum that makes it corrosion resistant. Very high strength can be obtained when a combination of aging and cold-working processes are performed on this alloy.

Fabrication and Heat Treatment
Super alloy 35N can be annealed at 1066°C (1950°F) followed by cooling in a rapid manner.
Super alloy 35N has good ductility and can thus be cold formed by conventional cold working methods.
Super alloy 35N is capable of being welded using TIG method. Welding in the annealed state and low heat inputs provide good welding results for this alloy.
The high work hardening rate of super alloy 35N will reduce ductility during the forming process.
Cold working and aging result in hardening of super alloy 35N.
Super alloy 35N is annealed at 1066°C (1950°F) followed by rapid air cooling. Age-hardening of this alloy takes place for 4 h at 566°C (1050°F) followed by air cooling.
Super alloy 35N is capable of being age-hardened.
Super alloy 35N is suitable for use in seawater applications, oil and gas well components containing hydrogen sulfide, and chemical process equipment.
