Nickel Base Castings and Nickel Alloy Castings What is Nickel Alloy Casting

Nickel castings are also known as nickel alloy castings or nickel-based alloy castings. It refers to nickel-based alloys made of nickel-based alloys with other metals. Such as tungsten, cobalt, titanium, and iron. Nickel has good mechanical, physical and chemical properties. Adding suitable elements can improve its oxidation resistance, corrosion resistance and high temperature strength. Improve physical properties.
Nickel-iron alloy castings are the most widely used and strongest materials in superalloys. They are ideal for high-performance applications. Such as aerospace, marine, chemical and other industries. Jet engine blades, deep-sea mining, energy, power, petrochemical industries.

Nickel-based alloys from JC Industries are resistant to high pressure, high temperature, and corrosion. JC’s metallurgical experts are ready to meet your investment casting needs. Even if tighter tolerances and thinner walls are required.

Advantages of Nickel Alloy Casting

  • Acid resistance
  • Oxidation resistance
  • Heat resistance
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Excellent polishing

Nickel alloys can be used in the following industries

Nickel Alloy Casting Applications

  • 1. Heat treatment industry. Such as furnace rolls, bell furnaces and annealing furnaces.
  • 2. Calciner. For example, it is used to calcine to produce high-performance corundum, calcine chromite to produce ferrochromium alloys. To recover nickel used as a catalyst in petrochemicals.
  • 3. Chemical and petrochemical. It is used to prepare new steam cracking crude gasoline furnaces to produce hydrogen, etc.
  • 4. Automation device. Such as catalytic support systems, spark plugs.
  • 5. Cleaning equipment for the nuclear industry. Such as nuclear waste removal.6. iron industry. Such as direct reduction of iron ore process. Production of sponge titanium.

Ni Resist Nickel-Base Alloy

Austenitic alloys that provide good hardness and dampening, and some wear and corrosion resistance. Ni Resist alloys have good strength and dimensional stability at high temperatures and are machinable but not weldable. We offer the following Ni Resist alloys for the investment casting process: 

  • Ni Resist (Type D)

Nickel-base castings are used primarily for their superior heat resistant and corrosive resistant qualities.
In North America, the designations for cast stainless steel and nickel based alloys are descriptive of their chemistry and purpose. A designation beginning with the letter “C” indicates that the alloy is used primarily for corrosive service. If the first letter is “H”, the alloy is typically used for high temperature service at or above 1200° F.

Common high-nickel alloys include Monel, Inconel, and Hastelloy.


Monel is the common designation for a group of nickel base castings and nickel alloys, primarily composed of nickel and copper, with small amounts of iron, manganese, carbon, and silicon. Stronger than pure nickel, Monel alloys are resistant to corrosion by many agents, including rapidly flowing seawater. Compared to steel, Monel is very difficult to machine as it work-hardens very quickly. It needs to be turned and worked at slow speeds and low feed rates.


Inconel, sometimes called “Inco,” is a family of austenitic nickel-chromium-based superalloys. Inconel alloys are oxidation and corrosion resistant, and are well suited for service in extreme environments subjected to pressure and heat. When heated, Inconel forms a thick, stable, passivating oxide layer protecting the surface from further attack. Inconel retains strength over a wide temperature range, attractive for high temperature applications where aluminum and steel would succumb to creep as a result of thermally induced crystal vacancies. Inconel’s high temperature strength is developed by solid solution strengthening or precipitation hardening, depending on the alloy.
Inconel alloys are typically used in high temperature applications.

Common trade names for Inconel Alloy 625 include: Inconel 625, Chronin 625, Altemp 625, Haynes 625, Nickelvac 625 and Nicrofer 6020.
