Nickel 600 Supplier

Nickel 600 is a nickel-chromium alloy that offers exceptional resistance to stress corrosion cracking, chlorine, and hydrogen chloride. At Arbor Metals TM, we’re a longtime nickel alloy supplier for large-scale petrochemical, oil and gas, and offshore operations.


What Is Nickel Alloy 600?

Nickel 600 is also known as Inconel alloy 600. This nickel-chromium alloy offers excellent performance for high-temperature and high-pressure applications in seawater, open-air, acidic, and alkaline environments.

Its unique properties come from a chemical composition of at least 72% nickel-cobalt, 14-17% chromium, 6-10% iron, and smaller percentages of manganese, silicon, carbon, copper, and sulfur. This combination enhances corrosion and temperature resistance.

What Are the Advantages of Nickel 600 for Corrosion Resistance?

Nickel alloy 600 provides superior corrosion resistance in extreme manufacturing conditions, outperforming both stainless steel and cupronickel metals. This high-performance alloy is ideal in environments with:

  • Significant oxidation risks
  • Sulfuric chemicals (including sulfuric acid)
  • Elevated temperatures
  • High pressure
  • High-velocity seawater or brackish water flow

Nickel 600 is practically invulnerable to stress corrosion cracking and chloride ions. One downside is that 600-grade products are difficult to machine, though cold forming, annealing, welding, brazing, and soldering are viable.

Which Applications Are a Good Fit for Nickel 600?

As a premium alloy, 600-grade nickel alloy is highly sought after in many industries, from aerospace manufacturing and nuclear energy to paper production and food processing. Some applications include:

  • Chemical evaporators
  • Heat exchangers
  • Thermocouple sheathing
  • Heavy machinery structural parts for manufacturing
  • Jet engine components

This alloy is an especially effective choice for the oil and gas, chemical manufacturing, and hydrocarbon refining industries. It excels in processing equipment and catalyst regenerators.

Which Nickel 600 Products Do You Need?

We provide a wide range of nickel 600 sizes and gauges for:

  • Coil and oscillate coil
  • Nickel alloy plates, circles, and rings
  • Seamless pipe
  • Round bars
  • Sheets

Our team can also procure specialty products.

How Does Nickel 600 Perform in High-Temperature Environments?

One of the main advantages of nickel-chromium alloys compared to nickel-copper alloys for petrochemical manufacturing is their enhanced temperature resistance characteristics. Nickel 600 has a melting range of 2,470 to 2,575 degrees Fahrenheit.

This alloy performs well even at temperatures exceeding 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s also effective for cryogenic environments of -250 degrees. Cold-worked nickel 600 can reach a tensile strength of up to 220,000 psi.
