Sheets and Plates

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 sheet and Inconel 601 plate 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 sheet and plate is 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 Inconel 601 alloy  sheet and plate or UNS N06601 specified by ASTM standard as  ASTM B 168 or ASME SB-168 are readily available in different types such as, for example, Inconel 601 Plane sheet and Plate, Shim, Thin, Perforated, Polished, Diamond, Chequered, Hot rolled, Cold rolled, Annealed, Soft annealed , coils, clad plate, strip etc.

As per availability and requirement Alloy 601 Sheets and Plate can be manufactured in different types burt, also they also has different types of finishing on surface such as for example, Brushed ,Polished t, Mirror finish, Mirror polished, Hot rolled(HR), Cold rolled  (CR), 2B,2D, BA NO(8), SATIN(Met with Plastic coated).
