Nickel Alloy 600 (N06600) is a nickel-chromium-iron alloy with good oxidation resistance at high temperatures and resistance to chloride-ion stress corrosion cracking corrosion by high-purity water, and caustic corrosion. Alloy 600 also has excellent mechanical properties and has a desirable combination of high strength and good workability. Used for furnace components, in chemical and food processing, in nuclear engineering and for the sparking electrodes.
