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.
