Markforged Inconel 625 is a nickel chromium-based superalloy that is extremely resistant to corrosion and strong at high temperatures.
Inconel 625 is a high-performance nickel-based alloy that is often used for 3D printing functional prototypes and end-use parts that are intended for harsh environments. It offers excellent mechanical properties and corrosion resistance, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.
Inconel 625 meets the chemical requirements specified by ASTM B443, ensuring its quality and consistency. This alloy maintains a high ultimate tensile strength (UTS) of 500 MPa even at elevated temperatures of up to 600 ºC. This makes it particularly useful for applications requiring strength and durability in high-temperature environments.
One of the notable features of Inconel 625 is its extraordinary resistance to sodium chloride (saltwater) at various temperatures. This corrosion resistance makes it an ideal choice for applications such as wire ropes and propeller blades used in underwater environments where exposure to saltwater is prevalent.
In addition to its marine applications, Inconel 625 finds use in various industries. It can be employed for fabricating crucibles, which are containers used for high-temperature melting of materials. It is also suitable for high-temperature fixtures, which are used to hold workpieces during heat treatments or other high-temperature processes.
The technical properties of Inconel 625 include:
- Tensile Strength: 765 MPa
- Tensile Modulus: 42 - 44 GPa (42,000 - 44,000 MPa)
Please note that the values provided for the technical properties are approximate and can vary depending on specific manufacturing processes, testing conditions, and the specific form of Inconel 625 used (such as powder or wire). It is recommended to refer to the manufacturer's documentation or data sheets for precise and up-to-date technical specifications for the specific form of Inconel 625 being utilized.
