Inconel®Alloy 600 is a nickel-chromium alloy with excellent carburization and good oxidation resistance. It was designed for use from cryogenic to elevated temperatures in the range of 2000°F (1093°C). The high nickel content of the material provides exceptional resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking.

Standard Wire Finishes
Extra Clean: (XC) Extra clean is also referred to as “bright annealed” or “bright annealed and cold rolled”
Grease (round wire only): Drawn in a heavy grease produces an “Ultra bright” finish for decorative applications
Soap (round wire only): Soap is used as a lubricant in the drawing process and is not removed. It acts as a lubricant during customer part forming operation. A soap finish is available in tempered products.
Plated: Many plating options are available.
∗Special finishes are available: Contact Ulbrich Wire Sales with special finish and plating requests.
Cut to lengths
Alloy 600cannot be hardened heat treating
