With Incoloy 028, you get access to an extensively alloyed stainless steel of the austenitic kind that offers resistance to corrosive media environments. Given its chromium & molybdenum content, this alloy offers high resistance to oxidizing & reducing acids or salts.

Apart from this, the inclusion of copper enhances its overall resistance to H2SO4 acid. In terms of usage, this alloy is used on a wide scale in industries such as petrochemical or chemical processing. The alloy tubes can be cold worked for enhanced strength when kept in a moderately corrosive sour gas well.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What differentiates Inconel from Incoloy?

The prime difference between the two is the composition. Inconel is primarily comprised of nickel and chromium, with nickel going over 50%. On the other hand, Incoloy is a nickel-chromium-iron alloy where nickel is below 50%.

  • Is Incoloy open to cold working?

Yes, cold working can be done with Incoloy, but only after the annealing process is complete.

  • What are some of the critical places for Incoloy use?

Incoloy is used in areas such as turbine blades, nuclear industry, as well as rocket engines.
