What does Incoloy® mean? Nickel Alloys

Incoloy is a trademark belonging to Special Metal Inc and applied to a family of nickel – iron – chrome alloys. Such is the recognition of the trademark that it is generically used to describe such alloys even if produced by another manufacturer. The most widely recognised Incoloy alloys are Alloy 825 ( Incoloy 825, UNS N08825, 2.4858) and Alloy 925 (Incoloy 925, UNS N09925), the latter of which is a higher-strength alloy. Alloy 825 is widely used in the production of valve components, whilst alloy 925 is used in a variety of tooling for oil and gas applications as a lower-cost alternative to Alloy 718 (Inconel 718, UNS N07718, 2.4688).
