Heat Resistant Direct Metal Laser Sintering Material
Nickel Alloy IN718 is a nickel based heat resistant alloy in fine powder form. This kind of precipitation-hardening nickel-chromium alloy is characterized by having good tensile, fatigue, creep and rupture strength at temperatures up to 700°C. 718 alloy has also outstanding corrosion resistance in various corrosive environments. In both as-built and age hardened states the parts can be machined, spark-eroded, welded, micro shot-peened, polished and coated if required.
This material is ideal for many high temperature applications such as gas turbine parts, instrumentation parts, power and process industry parts etc. Material also possess excellent cryogenic properties and potential for cryogenic applications.
- Aero and land based turbine engine parts
- Rocket and space application components
- Chemical and process industry parts
- Oil well, petroleum and natural gas industry parts
