Inconel is a family of austenitic nickel-chromium-based superalloys. Inconel is a trade name of Special Metals

Inconel alloys are oxidation- and corrosion-resistant materials well suited for service in extreme environments subjected to pressure and heat. When heated, Inconel forms a thick, stable, passivating oxide layer protecting the surface from further attack. Inconel retains strength over a wide temperature range, attractive high temperature applications where aluminum and steel would succumb to creep as a result of thermally induced crystal vacancies. Inconel’s high temperature strength is developed by solid solution strengthening or precipitation hardening, depending on the alloy.

Inconel alloys are typically used in high-temperature applications.  Common trade names for Inconel Alloy 625 include: Inconel 625, Chronin 625, Altemp 625, Haynes 625, Nickelvac 625 and Nicrofer 6020.

One of the most used Inconel alloys, the Inconel 718 is nowadays available under the following classification: Werkstoff 2.4668, NiCr19NbMo, UNS N07718
