Philadelphia Forgings is a reliable nationwide supplier of high-quality forged products. Based in southeastern Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Forgings’s customer base is concentrated largely in our home state as well as New Jersey and Delaware but also extends to various customers located throughout the United States. Inconel® forgings compose an important component of our extensive supply of exceptional forgings.
Properties of Inconel® Forgings
Inconel® is a trademarked material that is primarily composed of nickel but that also contains iron and some chromium. Inconel® forgings are extremely resistant to corrosion and additionally retain strength in elevated temperatures. Inconel®, being a nickel alloy, also has a low thermal expansion coefficient which makes it ideal for high-temperature applications.
Philadelphia Forgings offers metal forgings in the following types of Inconel®:
- INCONEL® 600 is a nickel alloy. Its forgings offer high strength and a moderate level of corrosion resistance.
- INCONEL® 601, also a nickel alloy, composes forgings that resist deformation as well as stress cracking in high temperature applications. The addition of aluminum and silicon improve this alloy’s resistance to oxidation.
- INCONEL® 625 forgings contain aluminum as well as titanium and are often age hardened for increased resistance to common types of metal fatigue.
- INCONEL® 718 is combined with niobium for the production of forgings that retain strength during lower temperature applications.
- INCONEL® 725 contains niobium, titanium, and molybdenum. Its forgings are precipitation hardened to increase strength and resist creep at higher temperatures.
- INCONEL® X-750 forgings contain a higher level of chromium and demonstrate a higher level of corrosion resistance.
- INCONEL® 800 forgings are composed of a basic nickel alloy that can resist oxidation and carburization at high temperatures.
- INCONEL® 800 HT is alloyed with aluminum and titanium. Its forgings have a higher level of heat resistance as well as other good mechanical properties.
- INCONEL® 825 forgings are often used for marine applications due to their higher titanium and molybdenum content which resists pitting, stress cracking, and corrosion.
- INCONEL® 903 forgings have a low thermal expansion coefficient and provide high levels of strength in elevated temperatures.
