The constant demand for innovative materials, resistant to aggressive environments, has led to the development of numerous Nickel-based Alloys.

Nickel alloys are employed for their exceptional mechanical properties and excellent performance in various types of corrosive environments, a nearly mandatory choice in certain industrial applications such as the chemical and petrochemical industry, energy and power generation, marine engineering, automotive and aerospace sectors.

In several environments where the corrosion resistance is the most important criteria for material selection, Nickel Alloys are highly recommended.

These alloys also have good mechanical properties.

The corrosion resistance is proved in terms of limited metal loss and in the ability to better withstand localized attack, notably pitting/crevice corrosion, intergranular attack and stress corrosion cracking.

There are some applications at elevated temperatures (such as aircraft components, chemical plant and petrochemical equipment) where a good combination of high strength and corrosion resistance is requested.

For these kinds of applications Nickel alloys could provide the most suitable compromise between different properties such as: good resistance to corrosion, creep, fatigue, thermal fatigue, thermal shock, impact, cavitation and erosion, good fracture properties, forming characteristics and weldability.

Alloys designed with a special chemical balance for welding.

These alloys are generally used for the production of heating elements for industrial furnaces and domestic devices.

For specific applications such as precision components in magnetic shields, integrated circuits and glass-to-metal seals, they guarantee special physical properties and a low coefficient of expansion.
