Nickel Alloy Bar Products
Centric Alloys Corporation is a distributor of high quality nickel and nickel bearing alloy round bars in various metallurgical and surface conditions. The bars are typically used in the production of machined or forged parts. Nickel and nickel bearing alloy bars are available in sizes ranging from 5/32 to 16, depending on grade, metallurgical condition, and customer specification requirements.
Nickel Alloy Bar Grades
Nickel and nickel bearing alloys comprise a large family of grades used in a diversity of demanding applications. These grades are specified when service conditions (combination of corrosive media, mechanical forces, and temperature) call for a superior level of corrosion resistance (i.e. pitting, crevice, stress corrosion, etc
), heat resistance, oxidation resistance, mechanical properties (strength, wear resistance, fatigue resistance, etc
), or some combination thereof. These grades are frequently used in petrochemical, aerospace, chemical processing, waste treatment, and nuclear applications. In spite of their higher cost relative to the stainless steels, service conditions often mandate the use of a nickel or nickel bearing alloy.
Nickel and nickel bearing alloys are classified in numerous ways. For example, they can be classified along compositional lines (i.e. Fe-Ni-Cr alloys, Ni-Cr alloys, Ni-Cu alloys, etc
) or service condition lines (i.e. High Temperature alloys, Heat Resistant alloys, Corrosion Resistant alloys, Controlled Expansion alloys, etc
). These alloys are sometimes referred to by terms such as High Performance alloys or Superalloys, among others. Regardless of the classification, Centric Alloys Corporation can provide you with the product needed for your demanding application.
