Nickel Alloy - 625

Nickel Alloy 625

625 – AMS5581 | AMS5599 | AMS5666

Product description

The high alloy content of Alloy 625 enables it to withstand a wide variety of corrosive environments. The alloy is almost completely resistant to mild environments such as the atmosphere, fresh water and seawater, neutral salts, and alkaline media. In more severe environments, the combination of nickel and chromium provides resistance to reducing conditions. The molybdenum content also makes Alloy 625 highly resistant to pitting and crevice corrosion. The high nickel content provides freedom from chloride stress-corrosion cracking.

Featured Inventory

Nickel and nickel based alloys are used for a wide variety of applications in the aerospace, chemical processing, marine and automotive industries.

Alloy 625 was introduced in the 1960's, developed for aircraft engines, but has found wide use in other applications requiring high-temperature strength and corrosion resistance. It contains a nominal 20% Cr, 9% Mo and 2.5% Fe, and is stabilised with approximately 3.5% Nb.

Alloy 625 belongs to the Nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy family. They are among the most versatile of the nickel base alloys and are used in a broad range of environments, both oxidising and reducing. Alloy 625 which contains 9% Mo, serves effectively as both a corrosion resistant and heat resistant material. The combination of high temperature strength and carbonation has made alloy 625 a popular choice for hostile environments.
