Alloy 600 Nickel Sheet & Coil - AMS 5540, UNS N06600 Inconel
Inconel Alloy® 600 is a nickel-chromium alloy designed for use at cryogenic temperatures and up to 2000˚F (1093˚C). The high nickel content of the alloy provides good resistance to reducing environments, while the chromium content provides resistance to weaker oxidizing conditions. The high nickel content of the alloy provides exceptional resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking. It is often used in the chemical industry, heat treating industry, electrical, nuclear and aeronautical fields.
600 is a non-magnetic, austenitic alloy with a high nickel content. This alloy can be used in solutions of magnesium chloride because of its exceptional resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking. It has exceptional strength at working temperatures up to 2000ºF (1093˚C).

The composition of Nickel Alloy 600 provides corrosion resistance in a wide range of corrosive environments. The addition of chromium provides superior corrosion resistance in acidic environments, compared to pure nickel, while allowing the material to maintain corrosion resistance in a reducing state and exhibit superior corrosion resistance to alkaline solutions. Nickel Alloy 600 is also highly resistant to stress-corrosion cracking.
