Introduction

INCOLOY alloys are super alloys having nickel as the base metal. INCOLOYS are composed of nickel-chromium-iron as the principal elements. Additives such as molybdenum, copper, and nitrogen are added in order to enhance the corrosion resistance and strength of these alloys. These alloys can function efficiently even at elevated temperatures.

INCOLOY alloy 330 is an alloy comprising of nickel-iron-chromium with silicon as an additive. Using silicon as an additive gives the alloy enhanced oxidation resistance. This alloy exhibits good strength at high temperatures and good resistance to oxidation and reduction environments. The microstructure of the alloy maintains its stability even after being exposed to high temperatures for long durations. The standard forms in which the alloy is available are forging stock, pipe, tube, round bar, flat bar, hexagon and wire.

This datasheet will look into the chemical composition, properties and applications of INCOLOY 330.
