Incoloy 825 is an alloy having the composition of the nickel-iron-chromium alloy, along with additions of copper, titanium, and molybdenum. The chemical composition of this nickel steel alloy has been designed to provide incredible resistance to diverse many corrosive environments. While the Incoloy 825 is similar to alloy 800, it is able to provide superior resistance to aqueous corrosion than it. Alloy 825 is known to have high resistance to both oxidizing and reducing acids, as well as to stress-corrosion cracking. It also has commendable resistance to localized attacks like crevice and pitting corrosion. This nickel steel alloy is especially resistant to phosphoric and sulfuric acids and is commonly used for acid production, chemical processing, pickling equipment, pollution-control equipment, nuclear fuel reprocessing, as well as oil and gas well piping. Alloy 825 has emerged as a popular choice for alloy steel pipe fittings in various environments due to its good mechanical and corrosion resistance properties.

Corrosion Resistance

Incoloy alloy 825 has extremely high resistance in both oxidized and reducing environments. This alloy is able to resist general corrosion, stress-corrosion cracking, crevice corrosion, intergranular corrosion, and pitting. Owing to this incredible corrosion resistance capacity of this nickel steel alloy, it is extremely useful in environments having phosphoric acid, seawater, sulfuric acid, sulfur-containing flue gases, sour gas, and oil wells.

 

Fabrication

The products made of Incoloy 825 are treated during the manufacturing process at the mill in order to develop the optimum combination of formability, mechanical properties, stabilization, and corrosion resistance. For the purpose of maintaining these properties during the process of fabrication, successive anneals must be performed between a range of 930 to 980°C/1700 to 1800° followed by a process of rapid water quenching or air cooling. Conducting a heat temperate at the lower end of the range may also be suited. Annealing at temperatures in the higher end of this range can, however, be preferred for softness and deep-drawing while also maintaining corrosion resistance. While quenching is typically not needed for parts of thin cross-sections like wire, strips, and sheets, it is recommended in products having a heavier cross-section to avoid sensitization.
