MP35N is an age hardenable Nickel-Cobalt base alloy that has a unique combination of properties – ultra high strength, toughness, ductility and outstanding corrosion resistance. MP35N resists corrosion in hydrogen sulphide, salt water and other chloride solutions. It also has excellent resistance to crevice and stress corrosion cracking in sea water and other hostile environments. The four alloy elements in MP35N are the basis for corrosion resistance in almost every Stainless Steel, Nickel and Cobalt-based alloy commonly used in the industry. The alloy resists corrosion in hydrogen sulphide, salt water and other Chloride solutions, as well as the mineral acids (Nitric, Hydrochloric and Sulphuric). MP35N is suitable where a high combination of strength, high modulus values and good corrosion resistance are required. Applications for this alloy also include medical devices and dental products.


This Cobalt-Chromium-Nickel alloy gives a combination of high strength, ductility and good mechanical properties and is age hardenable. Phynox† also has excellent fatigue life, corrosion resistance in numerous environments and is non-magnetic. Phynox† often provides the ideal solution whenever high mechanical performance is required under severely corrosive service conditions. Its mechanical strength increases with cold rolling strain, while additional strengthening can be achieved by age hardening at 500°C. It is recommended to use Phynox† where a high resistance to corrosion and / or low relaxation at temperatures up to 380°C (715°F) are required. This alloy is used in medical devices, dental products, surgical implants and orthopedics. Phynox† is also known as Elgiloy, Conichrome and Alloy 3J21.

Haynes˘ 25 / L605

Haynes 25/L605 is a Cobalt-Nickel-Chromium-Tungsten alloy that combines good high temperature strength with good resistance to oxidising environments up to 980°C (1795°F) for long exposures. It also has excellent resistance to sulphidation, and responds extremely well to cold working. Known as the strongest of the formable Cobalt alloys, its widespread use has caused it to be investigated for use over a wide range of conditions, thus making it a well characterised material. Some of the industries Haynes 25/L605 is supplied to include aerospace, power generation, electronics, land-based turbines and medical. Haynes 25/L605 is also known as Udimet L605.

Hastelloy˘ C-2000

This alloy was developed to broaden the application range of one alloy. With the addition of Copper to the Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum system, Hastelloy C-2000 is resistant to an extensive range of corrosive chemicals, including sulphuric, hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids. The combination of Molybdenum and Copper provide excellent corrosion resistance to reducing media, while the high Chromium content gives good oxidising resistance. Like other nickel alloys, Hastelloy C-2000 is ductile, easy to form and weld, while possessing excellent resistance to stress corrosion cracking in chloride-bearing solutions.

Hastelloy˘ C-276

This Nickel-Molybdenum-Chromium alloy with the addition of Tungsten, has excellent corrosion resistance in a wide range of corrosive media and is especially resistant to pitting and crevice corrosion. Hastelloy C-276 is considered to be the most versatile corrosion resistant alloy available, as it is resistant to the formation of grain boundary precipitates in the weld heat-affected zone; this makes it ideal for most chemical process applications in an as welded condition. Hastelloy C-276 also has exceptional resistance to pitting, stress-corrosion cracking and oxidizing atmospheres, as well as excellent resistance to multiple different chemical environments. Hastelloy C-276 is also known as Nicrofer 5716, Superimphy 276, and Inconel C-276.

Hastelloy˘ C-22

A Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum alloy with better overall resistance and versatility than any other NiCrMo available. It has excellent resistance to localised corrosion and to a variety of mixed industrial chemicals. Hastelloy C-22 is used in severely corrosive media involving high chloride and temperature applications such as buffer solutions, active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), fabric softeners, cleaning supplies, and condiments such as soy and chili sauce. Like other nickel alloys, Hastelloy C-22 is extremely ductile, exhibits exceptional weldability, and can easily be fabricated into industrial components. Hastelloy C-22 is also known as Nicrofer 5621, Superimphy C22, and Inconel 622.

Hastelloy˘ C-4

This Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum alloy tolerates high temperatures and gives a design freedom in areas where weld geometry makes excessive heat build-up unavoidable. Resistance to general and localised corrosion and stress corrosion cracking is generally similar to Hastelloy C-276. With its high contents of Chromium and Molybdenum, Hastelloy C-4 is able to withstand both oxidizing and non-oxidizing acids, and is resistant to pitting and crevice attacks in the presence of chlorides and other halides. Like other nickel alloys, Hastelloy C-4 is ductile, easy to form and weld. Hastelloy C-4 is also known as Nicrofer 6616.

Incoloy® A286

This age hardenable, Iron-Nickel-Chromium alloy is designed for applications requiring high strength and good corrosion resistance at temperatures up to 700°C (1290°F). Incoloy® A286’s strength makes it ideal for various components as part of aircraft and industrial gas turbines. The alloy is also used in the offshore oil and gas industry, and for fastener applications in automotive engine and manifold components that are exposed to high levels of heat and stress. Incoloy® A-286 is also known as Cronifer 1525 Ti, Superimphy 286, Pyromet A286, and Udimet A286.

Inconel® X750

Inconel® X750 is a Nickel-Chromium alloy made precipitation hardenable by additions of Aluminium and Titanium, having creep-rupture strength at high temperatures to about 700°C (1290°F). It is widely used for high temperature conditions but is not as strong as Nimonic 90, but Inconel® X750 also holds exceptional properties all the way down to cryogenic temperatures.

Incoloy® 825

Incoloy® 825 is a Nickel-Iron-Chromium alloy with additions of Molybdenum and Copper. It has excellent resistance to both reducing and oxidising acids, to stress-corrosion cracking and to localised pitting. It is also especially resistant to sulphuric and phosphoric acids. Alongside Inconel® 625, Incoloy® 825 is one of the most important nickel alloys for the oil and gas industry. Thanks to the balance of elements, it offers exceptional resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking, as well as crevice corrosion and general corrosion. Incoloy® 825 is also known as Nicrofer 4221, Superimphy 82 and Ferrochronin 825.

Inconel® 718

Nickel-Chromium alloy being precipitation hardenable and having high creep-rupture strength at high temperatures to about 700°C (1290°F).
