Different types of metals and their alloys

Choosing the right formula and material for the perforated steel product will allow one to increase the durability and ensure that their finished pieces stand for more time. Learning more about the different metals and alloys available to them is a must. Mid steel offers many benefits such aslow cost, durability and easy welding. While this form of steel is quite durable and it can also get rust easily. So a protective coating is often applied to protect the finish from corrosion. Monel is a nickel alloy, made from up to sixty seven percentage of actual nickel and a variety of other elements, including copper, silicon, manganese and iron. This tough alloy is particularly resistant to corrosion, making it an ideal choice for work in salt water or seawater and other tough or corrosive environment. Nickle-based high temperature alloys which is also known as nimonic alloys are used where very high temperatures will be experienced. For this reason, they find considerable use inside gas turbine engines, where temperatures are higher than the melting point of many metals. Inconel 718 is an austenitic nickel based super alloy.


Halstelloy is nickel based alloy; this compound is highly resistant to corrosion and designed to be used in applications where strength and rust resistance is a must. This proprietary blend of metal alloys and steel is also used when acidic or chemical compounds could come in contact with pipes or components and cause them to corrode or break over time. Haistelloy’s resistance to oxidation and corrosion allows for a variety of uses. Inconel718 is blended with steel, nickel and chromium which is designed for the use in a variety of settings and resists both oxidation and corrosion. This alloy is particularly well suited to high temperature applications and is often used in extreme environment. Its bar exhibits excellent high yield tensile and creep rupture properties at temperatures up to 1300F and oxidation resistance to 1800F. It is used in high strength application such as parts for jet engines and high speed airframe parts that includes wheels, spacers and high temperature bolts and fasteners.
