MATERIAL DESCRIPTION

Alloy 718 is a age-hardened nickel-chromium alloy containing also significant amounts of iron, niobium and molybdenum along with lesser amounts of aluminum and titanium. This provides a high strength alloy combined with corrosion resistance. Service temperatures range from -250°C to about 650°C. This alloy has also very good weld ability.

APPLICATIONS

Used in pumps, tooling, gas turbines, rocket motors and nuclear reactors.

Heat Treatment
Solution annealed at 1000 – 1052°C. Age hardening at 774 – 802°C.

Weldability
Very good.
