What is N06625? Nickel Alloys

N06625 is the Unified Numbering System (UNS) designation for a nickel-based alloy most commonly known as Inconel 625. The UNS system was created by a number of trade groups working together in the 1970’s, to reduce confusion from the same alloy being called different things or vice-versa. Each metal is indicated by a letter followed by five numbers, where the letter indicates the family of metals i.e. N for nickel-based alloys.

Inconel 625 was launched in 1964 following development by Special Metals Corporation. Inconel 625 achieves reasonably high strength through the addition of molybdenum and niobium to the nickel-chromium base, but nowhere as high as Inconel 718. However, due to the high level of chromium and molybdenum it is corrosion resistant in the most aggressive of environments. It is particularly resistant to pitting and crevice corrosion with a pitting resistance equivalent number (PREN) of over 45.
