Alloy 625 (UNS N06625) is a nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy with an addition of niobium. The addition of molybdenum acts with the niobium to stiffen the alloy matrix, providing a high strength without strengthening heat treatment. The alloy resists a wide range of corrosive environments and has good resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion. Alloy 625 is used in chemical processing, aerospace and marine engineering oil & gas, pollution control equipment, and nuclear reactors.
These materials are not a single material but the name for a family of corrosion resistant steels. Like many scientific breakthroughs, the origins of stainless steel lies in a lucky accident. From the smallest part of the zipper to the largest building skyscraper.
Metal fabrication is widely used across various industrial sectors such as mining, construction, manufacturing, shipbuilding, automotive, aerospace, and energy.
