Inconel X750 Wire

Inconel X-750 - ASTM B 637 Spring Wire Properties

Inconel X-750 is a high temperature nickel alloy that is highly resistant to chemical corrosion and oxidation. It has high stress-rupture strength and low creep rates under high stresses at temperatures up to 1500°F. Alloy X-750 is the most common type of Inconel and is an excellent choice when designing springs and wire forms for extreme temperature environments.

Heat Treating Inconel X750:

Here are two of the most common methods of heat treating Inconel X750:

1. For maximum creep, relaxation and rupture strength at temperatures above 1100°F:
Solution Treatment - 2100°F,
Hold for 2 to 4 hours,
Air-cool to room temperature
Intermediate Age - 1550°F
Hold for 24 hours
Air-cool to room temperature
Final Age -1300°F
Hold for 20 hours
Air-cool to room temperature

2. For highest room temperature yield strength and tensile ductility:
Stress Equalization - 1625°F
Hold for 24 hours
Air -cool to room temperature
Precipitation Age - 1300°F
Hold for 20 hours
Air-cool to room temperature

Manufacturing:

Inconel X750 is cold drawn and precipitation hardened after fabrication.

Uses:

Inconel X750 is used to fabricate springs and wire forms that are used in very high temperature applications such as jet engine parts, nuclear power plant applications, heat-treating fixtures, forming tools, and extrusion dies.
