This unique collaboration has resulted in a third generation alloy being used by both companies in their commercial and military gas turbine engines. The alloy has been shown to have superior high temperature properties while also exhibiting robust processing and manufacturing characteristics which are difficult to attain in high strength, high volume precipitate strengthened superalloys. The alloy is capable of achieving 700 C or higher temperature requirements for the hot sections of turbine components, thus exceeding the 650 C temperature limits of the previous generation of powder metallurgy disk alloys such as Rene 95, IN100 and Rene 88FDT.
April 2023 - ASMD/HPAD/AHAD - Addition of AM Inconel 718The newest addition to the CINDAS materials properties databases is additively manufactured Inconel 718. IN-718 is a well-known superalloy which is a workhorse for use in high temperature applications such as turbine blades, ducting systems and engine exhaust systems in aircraft and rocket engines. It is also used in chemical and petroleum processing plants for vessels, pumps, valves and piping, as well as in industrial gas turbines, nuclear reactors and the oil and gas industries. This alloy also has cryogenic applications due to its ability to withstand brittle fracture at low temperatures. Studies of additively manufactured parts made of IN-718 have shown that mechanical properties are not sacrificed when process parameters are optimally selected and sometimes exceed those of cast or wrought parts. The development of powdered metals along with the advancement in industrial-grade metal 3D printing machines has advanced the ability of many industries to take advantage of additively manufactured parts from IN-718. AM for IN-718 parts is dominated by powder bed fusion (PBF) processes, used to manufacture complex shaped parts, and directed energy deposition (DED) processes typically used for reclamation and repair of IN-718 and other nickel alloy parts. Recently the binder jetting (BJT) process has been used to make IN-718 AM parts. This chapter of 211 pages with 128 references contains 212 data sets with 652 curves. Over 73 properties are presented with 36 independent variables.

It was developed for service up to 1500°F and exhibits oxidation resistance up to 1000°F. Initially used for turbine blades, the alloy has found use in many other applications such as; mechanical joining of high temperature parts, exhaust valves and manifolds, springs for fuel elements and nuclear applications.
- Hastelloy XHastelloy X is a nickel-base solid solution strengthened superalloy. It has good oxidation properties and moderate strength properties up to 1600°F. The alloy has excellent welding and brazing characteristics and can be cold and hot formed satisfactorily. Typical applications are gas turbine engine combustors, bolts, afterburner components, and structural components in the combustion and turbine sections. Due to its resistance to oxidizing, reducing, carburizing and nitriding atmospheres, it is also used for industrial furnace applications and also in applications in the petrochemical industry (retorts, catalyst support grids, baffles, tubing and dryers).
- Alloy 625 PlusAlloy 625 Plus is a precipitation-hardenable, nickel-base alloy that provides high strength levels while maintaining corrosion resistance similar to Alloy 625 and superior to Alloy 718. The alloy is suitable for applications where severe corrosion environments are a concern, as in marine, deep sour-gas gas wells and a variety of refinery and chemical process industry applications.
- SS303/303SeSS303/303Se are nonmagnetic, wrought, austenitic type 18Cr-8Ni stainless steels with S added to 303 and Se added to 303Se to improve machinability and friction and wear properties. The 303 and 303Se grades have good corrosion resistance in most media as well as excellent oxidation resistance and good creep properties at elevated temperatures and at cryogenic temperatures as well.
- NoteSince the AHAD is a combination of the ASMD and HPAD, the updates listed above also apply to the AHAD.
February 2015 - HPAD - HPAD Now AvailableThe High Performance Alloys Database (HPAD) is now available from CINDAS LLC. We began taking orders on 1 February 2015. It currently contains 85 chapters on high performance alloys used in the oil/gas, chemical processing, power generation and transportation industries. Approximately 15-18 chapters will be added in 2015, with the database scheduled to be complete in 2016, at which time it will be regularly updated and expanded continually with carefully selected alloys. The alloys chosen for inclusion in the database were those of particular interest to the researchers in those industries and the chapters include detailed data on corrosion testing and joining. The web-based HPAD has the same interactive features as the ASMD, TPMD and MPMD.
