Alloy 718 / Inconel 718 / N07718 / 2.4668

Inonel Alloy 718 is a high-quality, high-temperature alloy, designed and developed specifically for operation at temperatures up to 980 C (author and developer Eiselstein). Almost immediately after its release, it began to be in great demand, and already in the 70s of the last century in the USA it accounted for more than 50% of the total gross production of industrial heat-resistant alloys. To this day, Inconel 718 is considered one of the most demanded materials of the Inconel group, the patent for it today belongs to the Special Metals Corporation.
Russian analogue of inconel 718- 45 according to GOST 5632.

The unique formulation of Inconel 718 provides enhanced strength and corrosion resistance, combined with simple machinability and easy weldability. Its main advantages are resistance to corrosion damage in the areas of welded joints and high tensile strength at temperatures up to 700 C.

According to the NACE MR0175 standard, alloy 718 is regulated as type 4d, which makes it possible to use it when exposed to different combinations of chlorides, hydrogen sulfide with different concentrations (but with a yield point of 1034 MPa).
The first purpose of this alloy was to manufacture a special material for the skin of supersonic aircraft.
In modern production, the alloy is actively used for the manufacture of parts of gas turbines, elements and assemblies of rocket and aircraft engines (compressor blades), and spacecraft. Inconel alloy 718 is indispensable for the creation of nuclear reactors and is actively in demand in the petrochemical and gas-oil industries.
An improved modification of Inconel 718 is Inconel alloy 718SPFTM, endowed with high ductility (N0771).
Corrosion resistance
Due to its high chromium and molybdenum content, Nicrofer 5219 Nb has excellent resistance to localized corrosion, such as pitting, in many environments, both at high and low temperatures. Due to its high chromium content, Nicrofer 5219 Nb also has a high resistance to stress corrosion cracking, making it one of the outstanding materials for use in oilfield applications, H2S sour gas and marine applications.
Nicrofer 5219 Nb is mainly used for temperatures up to 700 C (1300 F). Its corrosion resistance up to 1000 C (1830 F) is remarkable compared to that of other -phase-hardened superalloys.
Nicrofer 5219 Nb can be welded by all conventional welding methods: non-consumable, consumable, hot-electrode, plasma, active gas, submerged arc and arc welding. If gas-electric welding is used, the pulse technique is preferred.
The following welding consumable is recommended:
Stick electrodes:
NicroferS5219 FM718
op. no. 2.4667
AWS A5.14: ERNiFeCr-2
BS 2901 Part 5: NA51
Main features and advantages of the alloy:
Good technological properties in the state of diffusion annealing;
Good mechanical short-term and long-term properties and high strength;
Good creep resistance at 700 C;
Good corrosion resistance up to 1000 C;
Excellent mechanical properties at low temperatures;
Excellent corrosion resistance at high and low temperatures as well as good resistance to stress corrosion cracking and pitting;
Good weldability with arc and resistance welding without a tendency to weld cracking.
Main areas of use:
With its high temperature strength up to 700 C (1300 F), excellent corrosion resistance and good machinability, Nicrofer 5219 Nb has a wide range of applications. It was originally used for turbine impellers in aircraft jet engines, where creep strength and fatigue strength are critical.
Due to its properties, good machinability and cost-effectiveness, the material is widely used in a wide variety of applications:
high-voltage rotating and non-rotating components in gas turbines and rocket engines;
high strength screws, dowels and fasteners, components in nuclear reactors and spaceships;
heat-resistant tools for tube presses.
Important new applications include pump shafts and other high-stress components for offshore and offshore drilling rigs. Especially this alloy has proven to be suitable for sour gas (H2S, CO2 and chloride) drilling rigs in oil and gas production.
Various products are produced from this alloy according to ASTM standards:
B637 - Bars, forgings, forging;
B670 - flat products for high temperatures.
