INCONEL® 718 – 2.4668 – UNS N07718

Inconel alloy 718® is a high-strength, corrosion-resistant nickel chromium material used at -423º to 1300ºF (-217º to 704ºC). The age-hardenable alloy can be readily fabricated, even into complex parts. Its welding characteristics, especially its resistance to postweld cracking, are oustanding. The ease and economy with which Inconel® alloy 718 can be fabricated, combined with good tensile, fatigue, creep, and rupture strength, have resulted in its use in a wide range of applications.

General characteristics

For most applications, alloy 718 is specified as solution annealed and precipitation hardened (precipitation hardening, age hardening, and
precipitation heat treatment are synonymous terms). Alloy 718 is hardened by the precipitation of secondary phases into the metal matrix.
If the material is to be machined, formed, or welded, it typically is purchased in the mill annealed or stress relieved condition. The material
is then fabricated in its most malleable condition. After fabrication, it can be heat treated as required per the applicable specification.
