Laboratory analysis of Inconel metals

A reminder about Inconel metals

Inconel metals are superalloys made from a mix of nickel and other metals such as chromium, molybdenum, iron and titanium. These alloys are generally known as Inconel 600, Inconel 625 and Inconel 718. They have the particular traits of being extremely resistant to corrosion and to heat. Inconel materials are used in many industries such as petrochemistry, aeronautics, aerospace or even nuclear energy.

Chemical analysis of Inconel materials : one of FILAB’s many skills

For over 20 years, FILAB laboratory has been providing metallurgical analyses of Inconel metals to hundreds of clients, some of which were provided under ISO 17025.
