2.4858 is the Werkstoff designation for the nickel-based Alloy 825.
Incoloy® 825 (UNS N08825/W.Nr. 2.4858) is a nickel-iron-chromium alloy with additions of molybdenum, copper, and titanium. Incoloy 825 was primarily developed in order to better resist sulphuric acid. Copper additions are well-known to improve resistance to reducing environments, such as sulphuric acid. This property is also exploited in Ferralium 255 (containing 2% copper additions) and the much more highly alloyed Alloy 20 (3-4% copper) to great effect.
The mechanical properties of Incoloy 825 are relatively constant from very low temperatures (considered cryogenic i.e. -150degC) up to 540degC (100degF). Above this temperature, there is the possibility of undesirable microstructural phase changes that significantly reduce impact toughness and elongation. Incoloy is a registered trademark of Special Metals Corporation.
Langley Alloys carries a significant stock of Alloy 825 solid bar, from ¾” up to 10” in a large number of incremental sizes. Popular applications currently served by our customers include valve components, thermowells and sensors, fasteners and also some downhole tooling which make use of its non-magnetic properties.
