Nickel Alloy 825
Alloy 825 is a titanium-stabilized fully austenitic Ni-Fe-Cr with additions of copper and molybdenum
Alloy 825 is characterized by:
- Good resistance to stress-corrosion cracking
- Satisfactory resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion
- Good resistance to oxidizing and non-oxidizing hot acids
- Good mechanical properties at both room and elevated temperatures, up to approximately 550°C (1020°F)
Applications and Uses for Nickel Alloy 825
Many manufacturing applications use durable and high-performing components made from a Nickel alloy. Metals 28 supply’s Nickel alloy in many formats, including Nickel alloy plate, Nickel alloy bar, Nickel alloy pipe and Nickel alloy sheet. On top of that, our customers can choose between a wide range of thicknesses, sizes and shapes.
Nickel combines well with most metals, especially Copper. Nickel-Copper alloys have a wide range of applications. Nickel also alloys well with iron and Chromium. Nickel alloys perform well at high temperatures and show long-lasting strength in the toughest of applications.
Just imagine how incredibly robust the gas turbine of an aircraft needs to be, or the steam turbine in a power plant. These hard-wearing engineering components are frequently manufactured from a Nickel alloy.
These alloys have high tensile strength and low expansion, even at temperatures of over 1800°F, far exceeding what most steels might withstand. Nickel alloys can be welded in a hardened condition, and can withstand the harshest environments. Its resistance to creep and stress-rupture is exceptional.
Corrosion resistance is a strong selling point of Nickel alloys. The marine industry is a big customer of Nickel alloy parts because Nickel alloys have exceptional resistance to the pitting and cavitation caused by seawater.
Nickel alloys can also have other useful properties. There are electrical resistance Nickel alloys, which are often used in control instruments. 50/50 Nickel-Titanium alloys can return to their original shape after heating. These are called shape memory Nickel alloys. There are also high-Nickel alloys containing Iron and Molybdenum, which are magnetic.
Nickel Alloy 825 Pipe
Nickel alloy pipe combines high corrosion resistance with high tensile strength. The Chemical, Aerospace and Power Generation industries use alloy 825 pipe in a vast range of applications.
Nickel alloy pipe can be manufactured in a variety of sizes and thicknesses and cut to any length. We also offer butt weld, socket weld and threaded fittings, as well as a full range of custom forged Nickel alloy flanges.
Nickel Alloy 825 Sheet
Nickel alloy 825 sheet is often used in water treatment plants, power plants, and oil refineries. It is robust, comes in an assortment of sizes to meet most requirements, and is easy to cut.
825 alloy sheet is also resistant to rust, caustic alkalis and acids, but remains thermostable. It is one of the few metals also which can handle being in contact with fluorine and hydrofluoric acid.
Nickel alloy sheet offers robustness and work-ability, which is why the chemical industry is a significant customer.
Nickel Alloy 825 Plate
Nickel alloy 825 in sheet form has a great many uses. The material is available in a variety of grades and thicknesses, and can also be supplied with a matte finish. Nickel alloy sheet can be cut to very precise dimensions in multiple quantities, making it a vital component in a vast range of engineering and construction processes.
On the other hand, 825 plate has excellent corrosion resistance. It also combines a long service life with low maintenance costs. The petrochemical industry is another big customer.
Nickel Alloy 825 Bars
Nickel alloy 825 bars are often used by the marine industry to make propeller shafts. Nickel alloy 825 has exceptional corrosion resistance to seawater. Because of this, propeller shafts can be made lighter and smaller. This means smaller supports and seals, improving boat performance and efficiency.
Furthermore, 825 bars are also widely used in the Aerospace, Petrochemical and Power Generation industries. Any application requiring a bar component to operate in a harsh, corrosive environment is best served by one made from Nickel alloy.
