Customers can choose from a selection of commonly used air melted nickel-based alloys for their metal investment cast projects. In many cases wrought components have equivalent casting alloy specification and can easily be converted without derogation. When converting from a previously designed wrought component to a nickel-based casting, the nickel-based steel alloy casting design can usually be made to improve productivity and reduce total costs.

Nickel-Based Alloys for Metal Investment Casting

Alloy choice is a very important aspect of part design. Choosing the right nickel-based alloy is dependent on several factors, including the environment the nickel-based casting will be exposed to while in service. Furthermore, if the nickel-based casting is going to be used in conjunction with a wrought component (i.e. welding two components together) it is important to have a preliminary discussion with our metallurgist to ensure you choose the appropriate chemistry and material properties suitable for your application.

There are several names for nickel-based alloys in the market place. Many commonly heard names are Monel®, Hastalloy®, and Inconel®. These are all trademark names of nickel-based alloys, of which the ASTM specifications make accessible to everyone. Nickel-based alloys are known for their oxidation and corrosion resistant properties in harsh environments and high-temperature applications.
