Inconel 600 is a nickel-chromium alloy with good oxidation resistance at high temperatures and resistance to chloride-ion stress-corrosion cracking, corrosion by high-purity water, and caustic corrosion. Inconel 600 is used for furnace components, in chemical and food processing, in nuclear engineering and for sparking electrodes. Standard product forms are round, hexagon, extruded section, flats, forging stock, pipe, tube, plate, sheet, strip and wire.
