Nickel AlloysAlloy 825

High performance nickel-iron-chromium alloy with excellent corrosion resistance.

Alloy 825 is a nickel-iron-chromium alloy with additions of molybdenum, copper and titanium (NiCr21Mo), supplied in the hot worked and annealed condition. It achieves good mechanical properties from cryogenic to medium-high temperatures (540oC) and can be significantly strengthened through cold working.

The high nickel content ensures resistance to stress corrosion cracking, combined with molybdenum and copper to strongly resist reducing environments such as sulphuric and phosphoric acids, chromium to resist oxidising environments such as nitric acid, titanium to inhibit intergranular corrosion, and overall resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion.

The alloy cannot be hardened by heat-treatment, but enhanced mechanical properties can be obtained by cold working, especially in sour well tubing strings, and for heat-exchangers, and in chemical processing plants.
