What is the Difference Between Hastelloy® and Incoloy®?

Posted by Adam Ascione on September 17, 2015

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.

What is the Difference Between Inconel® and Incoloy®?

Posted by Don Ascione on May 14, 2015

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.

3 Lesser-Known Nickel Alloy Applications

Posted by Adam Ascione on January 27, 2015


Nickel is one of the most versatile elements used in industry.  While nickel has been used in its pure form since ancient times, today it is most commonly employed in alloys.
Nickel’s slow oxidation rate makes it highly resistant to corrosion, and it provides excellent heat resistance as well.  It has a wide solubility range with many different alloy materials, including titanium, aluminum, and iron, among others.

What is Monel's Temperature Range?

Posted by Don Ascione on August 11, 2014

When a company lists an alloy as “high-temperature” what exactly does that mean? This may not seem that important but it is in fact a critical question to be considered and to answer. Misjudging temperature thresholds can spell disaster, for both safety and your bottom line. In this article we will look at the popular high-temperature alloy, Monel, and try to answer the question “How hot can Monel get?”
