Basic introduction to material Inconel 600

Inconel 600 is a popular nickel-chromium-iron alloy widely used in various industrial applications that has great resistance to heat and corrosion. Inconel 600 has excellent resistance to oxidation at high temperatures. It is the standard material for nitriding containers because of its resistance to nitrogen at high temperatures. It is known for its excellent corrosion and oxidation resistance at high temperatures, making it suitable for extreme environments. In this blog post, we will introduce you to the properties of the Inconel 600 and its applications.


Inconel 600 is suitable for all concentrations of sulphuric acid at low temperatures; In 50% ~ 70% concentration of caustic alkali solution (such as NaOH), it has good corrosion resistance and does not produce stress corrosion cracking. Inconel is suitable for various solutions and acids containing Cl -, and many media such as caustic alkali with concentration < 70%.


Alloy 600 is non-magnetic, has excellent mechanical properties and a combination of high strength and good workability and is readily weldable.  It also has good resistance to carburisation. Inconel 600 will resist attack by sulphur compounds at moderate temperatures, but is subject to sulphidation at higher temperatures. Lubricants containing molybdenum disulphide should not be used above 425°C. Inconel 600 is not embrittled by long exposures at high temperature.


Chemical and mechanical properties of Inconel 600

Due to the different chemical composition of Inconel 600 and stainless steel, their properties are also very different. The following is an analysis of the characteristics of Inconel 600 based on its chemical composition:

  • Carbon≤0.15: Improve the deformation resistance and tensile strength of the blade; Enhance hardness and improve wear resistance.

  • Copper≤0.35: Enhance corrosion resistance; Enhance wear resistance.

  • Manganese≤1.0 : Increase the quenchability, wear resistance and tensile strength; Removal of oxygen from molten metal by separate oxidation and separate vaporization; When added in large quantities, the hardness is enhanced, but the brittleness is improved.

  • Nickel≥72.0 : Enhance strength, hardness and corrosion resistance.

  • Silicon≤0.5: Enhanced ductility; Increase the tensile strength; Removal of oxygen from molten metal by separate oxidation and separate vaporization.

  • Sulphur≤0.015 : Small amount used to improve machinability.


600 Alloy Inconel offers good formability, weldability, and excellent corrosion resistance. As a result of its electrical conductivity and oxidation resistance, it’s also a popular choice for electronic components like connectors and lead wires. Inconel 600 is a superior material with wide-ranging mechanical properties needed for successful high-temperature production processes.

Inconel 600 manufacturing process

Inconel 600 has complex ingredients and the processing process is very different from stainless steel. Let’s take steel plate as an example to briefly introduce the processing process. The following procedures for precision rolling of Inconel 600 plates include: billets examination → hot rolling → annealing → pickling → grinding & cleaning → cold rolling → annealing → pickling → leveling → flattening → cutting → ultrasonic test → final inspection → marking → packaging → storing. The completed products are Inconel 600 sheets of 2 m x 1 m x 2.5 mm and Inconel 600 plates of 2 m x 1.2 m x 6.5 mm; standard: ASTM B168 Gr. N06600. The hot rough rolling & blooming temperature: 1120°C ± 10°C; hot precision rolling temperature: 1090°C ± 10°C; hot rolling maximum deformation rate of each pass: 30%; cold rolling total deformation rate: 30% ~ 40%; annealing temperature for hot-rolled plates: 1000~1020°C; annealing temperature for cold-rolled plates: 980~1000°C; both are air cooling.


Applications of Inconel 600 products

Inconel 600 finds applications in various industries, such as aerospace, chemical processing, nuclear engineering, and thermal processing. In the aerospace industry, it is used to manufacture jet engine exhaust systems and airframe components. It is used in heat exchangers, furnace components, and chemical processing equipment in the chemical processing industry due to its excellent resistance to corrosive environments. In nuclear engineering, it is used to manufacture reactor vessels and heat exchangers due to its excellent resistance to radiation and high-temperature environments.
