Nickel superalloys – powder for additive manufacturing

Using 3D printing, nickel superalloys are used to produce components for aircraft engines or nuclear reactors, for example, but also for heat exchangers and exhaust air components used in the chemical processing industry, the marine or nuclear industry.

Nickel-Superlegierung 625 in additive manufacturing – for a high corrosion and oxidation resistance at high temperatures

Nickel Superalloy 625 is a low carbon Nickel-Chromium alloy. High tensile, creep and rupture strength characterize this alloy and parts out this alloy have typically excellent fatigue and thermal-fatigue properties combined with good oxidation and corrosion resistance. Initially developed in the 1960s with the purpose of creating a material that could be used for steam-line piping it offers nowadays a broad range of applications and is particularly suitable for applications where corrosion and oxidation resistance at high temperatures is required, e.g. in the chemical processing industry, the marine or nuclear industry.
