Alloy 600 (UNS N06600) is a nickel-chromium alloy with good oxidation resistance at high temperatures and resistance to chloride-ion stress corrosion cracking corrosion by high-purity water, and caustic corrosion. Used for furnace components, in chemical and food processing, in nuclear engineering and for the sparking electrodes.
