Hastelloy® and Incoloy® are both members of the “superalloy” family, also known as high-performance alloys. As such, they have several key characteristics in common. They both possess excellent mechanical strength, especially at high temperatures, and they are both highly resistant to corrosion and oxidation. However, there are also several important differences to note between these two superalloys, including their chemical composition, their weldability, and their suitability for different applications.

Although Inconel® and Incoloy® belong to the same family of superalloys, each possesses its own distinct properties, as well as sharing others. Also known as high-performance alloys, the superalloys in general provide high resistance to corrosion and oxidation, as well as mechanical strength at elevated temperatures.
Airlines are always looking for ways to save on operational expenses. So the prospect of being able to save millions of dollars a year on fuel costs by reducing the weight of the passenger seats in their cabins may be too much for them to pass up. That’s the hope of a French start-up that has engineered a new passenger seat made mostly of titanium.
