Nickel-base alloys are most often alloyed with a particular element to impact certain properties. They are known for:

  • High strength
  • Toughness
  • Resistance to mineral acids
  • Resistance to organic acids and salts

Nickel-base alloys are commonly used for:

  • Fluid handling systems, such as pump and valve components
  • High velocity fluid or crevice applications
  • Caustic soda processing components
  • Applications which encounter hot corrosives or corrosive vapors
