Inconel 600 Bolts with World Wide
Lightning Bolt has been the name to know for Inconel 600. This alloy
is a nickel-chromium alloy with good oxidation resistance at high
temperatures and resistance to chloride ion stress-corrosion
cracking, corrosion by high-purity water, and caustic corrosion.
This alloy is commonly used for furnace components, in chemical and
food processing, in nuclear engineering, and for sparking
Since Inconel nickel-chromium-iron alloy 600 is a standard
engineering material for applications that require resistance to
corrosion and heat, it is common to use this alloy in a variety of
fasteners including nuts, bolts, studs, and washers. The alloy also
has outstanding mechanical properties and presents the desirable
combination of high strength and good workability.
The high nickel content found in Inconel 600 gives the alloy
resistance to corrosion by many organic and inorganic compounds and
also makes it virtually immune to chloride-ion stress-corrosion
cracking. Chromium confers resistance to sulfur compounds and also
provides resistance to oxidizing conditions at high temperatures or
in corrosive solutions. It should be noted that this alloy is not
precipitation hardenable; it is hardened and strengthened only by
The versatility of Inconel® alloy 600 has led to its use in a
variety of applications throughout the world involving temperatures
from cryogenic to above 2000°F.
Inconel 600 is used extensively in the chemical industry for its
strength and corrosion resistance. This includes applications such
as heaters, stills, bubble towers, and condensers for processing of
fatting acids; evaporator tubes, tube sheets, and flaking trays for
the manufacture of sodium sulfide; and equipment for handling
abietic acid in the manufacture of paper pulp.
This alloy is a standard material of construction for nuclear
reactors and power generation. It has oustanding resistance to
corrosion by high purity water, and no indication of chloride-ion
stress-corrosion cracking in reactor water systems has been
detected. For nuclear applications, the alloy is produced to
exacting specifications and is designated Inconel® alloy 600T.
Regardless of your application, trust Lightning Bolt for all of your
hard-to-find Inconel fasteners.
