Inconel Alloy 601 nickel-chromium-iron alloy is an engineering material for applications that require resistance to heat and corrosion. The major characteristic of Inconel 601 bar is its resistance to high-temperature oxidation. The alloy also has good resistance to aqueous corrosion, has high mechanical strength, and is readily formed, machined, and welded.

The substantial nickel and chromium contents of INCONEL alloy 601 in conjunction with its content of aluminum give the alloy superior resistance to high temperature corrosion mechanisms. By virtue of its contents of chromium and aluminum, alloy 601 offers unique resistance to oxide spalling under cyclic thermal conditions.

Inconel 601 round bar are not embrittled by extended exposure to high temperatures. During high-temperature exposure, alloy 601 forms an extremely protective and adherent oxide film on the surface of the material. In addition, a slight amount of internal oxidation occurs and provides higher chromium content in the surface oxide.

Specification

The Specification for Inconel Alloy 601 as per astm Standard is ASTM B 166/ASME SB-166, they are categorised into different form and shape such as Inconel 601 Round Bar, Rod, Channel Bar, T-Bar, Flat Bar, Blocks, Square, bar, Triangle, Threaded, Hex (A/F), Profiles, Half Ingot, Billet, I/H Bar, etc. It is available at various Inconel 601 round bar suppliers.
