4 Reasons Why You Should Consider Using Alloy 625


Alloy 625 is an alloy that is made out of mostly nickel and chromium. It is used for a wide range of industries, including the aeronautics industry, the US Navy, and in manufacturing all over the world. You might be wondering if using alloy 625 in your products, or even in just the machines that help you make your products, is worth it. Here are four reasons why you should consider using alloy 625.

1. It's Resistant to Corrosion

Alloy 625 includes molydenum, which is a matrix stiffener. Its inclusion helps make alloy 625 very resistant to corrosion, to the point where the US Navy and other companies that do a lot of work in the ocean, use it extensively. Alloy 625 is especially resistant to crevice corrosion, which is when saltwater gets into an enclosed space and cannot easily be removed, resulting in that space being exposed for an extended period of time and subsequently corroding. Because the molydenum is able to stiffen the matrix, there is a reduced chance that any small areas will succumb to the corrosive effects of saltwater or other liquids. 

2. It's Easy to Fabricate

Many metals are difficult to make because they will crack under high temperatures or high levels of stress. This is because there is an elevated amount of nitrogen in the metal. Even though alloy 625 contains molydenum and chromium, both of which trap nitrogen in the metal, it can easily be removed by reheating the metal in a vacuum arc remelt or electroslag remelt furnace. This process does not take long and means that alloy 625, once it is remelted, can easily be manufactured. Other alloys cannot deal with the high-nitrogen problem with as much ease. The fact that it is easy to fabricate will drop the prices of the alloy.

3. It's Strong

Because of the molydenum in the metal, alloy 625 is very strong. The matrix stiffener provides a protective force that helps the alloy increase the levels of stress it can endure before it bends and breaks.

4. It's Easy to Weld

Finally, alloy 625 was designed specifically so that it would be easy to weld. This is important because it means that it can be used for a wide variety of industrial functions and not need to be reinforced. It is widely known as one of the superalloys that can be welded in almost any circumstance in the least amount of time.
