Nickel tubingThe Basics

First developed by researchers at Wiggin Alloys in England in the 1940’s, Inconel is a family of nickel-chromium alloys. Because of their high performance properties, these alloys are often used in extreme environments. Sometimes called “Inco”, inconel also has a variety of trade names, including Inconel 625, Chronin 625, Altemp 625, Haynes 625, Nickelvac 625 and Nicrofer 6020.


The composition of different Inconels can vary greatly, but they all are predominantly composed of nickel and chromium. For example, alloy 625 is 58% Nickel and 20-23% chromium.


Inconels are resistant to both oxidation and corrosion.

601 Nickel Pipe, 625 Nickel Tubing & other Nickel Alloy Products

October 18, 2012 in Blog, Manufacturing, Pipe by

Nickel TubingPipes are made of many different materials, including concrete, plastic, fiberglass, ceramics and a wide array of metals. Each material has its advantages — its properties that make it useful in certain situations. For example, aluminum is used in refrigerant systems for heat transfer. Plastic tubing is useful for its chemical resistance, non-corrosive properties and light weight. Ceramic and concrete work well for low-pressure conditions such as drainage or gravity flow. However when pipes must survive intense conditions, many rely on Nickel alloys.
