Mechanical Properties


Nickel alloy 800H is essentially the same as nickel alloy 800, except that the carbon content is limited to the upper portion of the specified range. This alloy is subjected to solution-anneal and hence it exhibits a coarser grain structure. It has high creep and rupture strengths, which enable the alloy to be used in applications that require prolonged exposure to corrosive environments.

The following datasheet will provide an overview of nickel alloy 800H.
