Nickel Alloy 600, also called as Inconel® 600, is nickel-based. It’s a one-of-a-kind nickel-chromium alloy that’s known for its high-temperature oxidation resistance. It has a variety of uses, from cryogenics to applications with extreme temperatures of up to 2000°F (1093°C). Nickel Alloy 600 tubing has high nickel concentration (at least 72%), along with its chromium content, gives a variety of advantages to consumers, including: Continue reading “Advantages of Using Nickel Alloy 600 Tubing”
4130 is an alloy steel containing chromium and molybdenum. It is popularly known as Chromoly in the commercial market. Typically, the composition includes 0.8 to 1.1% chromium and 0.15 to 0.25% molybdenum with both functioning as strengthening agents. It is considered low-carbon steel. It is exceptional welding steel, which you can weld by most common methods, and machine it at normalized or tempered conditions.

Stainless steel is a term that encompasses a group of iron-based alloys containing at least 10.5% chromium by mass. Besides this, the alloy must also have a maximum of 1.2% carbon to be considered stainless. It may also contain elements in requisite amounts such as nickel, manganese, silicon, nitrogen, titanium, molybdenum, niobium, and others which ascribes valuable properties to the alloy. The addition of chromium provides the alloy with its rust-resistant quality. It forms a protective film on the surface, enabling it to prevent corrosion.

Planning to purchase steel tubes for your business but not sure which is the right choice? Well, 4130 steel tubes are considered one of the best in the industry, especially in aircraft manufacturing. Before you buy 4130 tubing for your business, let us have a look at its benefits.
Steel alloys are generally classified by number according to their composition and tensile strength. The 4130 steel tubes are cold-drawn and standardized with an elasticity of somewhere between 85,000 and 110,000 psi. So it’s extended at room temperature to the ideal strength and thickness inside the reach at which the grade 4130 is applied. Continue reading “Benefits of Purchasing 4130 Tubing for Your Business”
