The Use of Various Elements in Nickel-based Alloys

After Russia pledged to scale back its military operations around Kyiv and in northern Ukraine, the prices of most industrial metals fell, led by aluminum, showing people's concerns for supply shortage eased.

At an earlier time, the West imposed sweeping sanctions on Russia for its invasion of Ukraine, which aroused concerns about the supply problem because Russia is a major producer of nickel, aluminum, and copper. 

Russia is also a major gas supplier to Europe, where potential supply disruptions are seen as hitting power-intensive aluminum and zinc production.  

"Hopes that Russia and Ukraine will reach an agreement to end the conflict have led to a sudden change in prices," said one metals analyst.

The prices of other commodities like the Inconel718 powder are still very uncertain.

The effects of boron and silicon elements: significantly reduce the melting point of the alloy, expand the temperature range of the solid-liquid line, and form a low-melting eutectic; deoxidation and reduction and slag-making functions; hardening and strengthening of the coating; improving the performance of the operation process.

The role of copper: improve the corrosion resistance to non-oxidizing acids.

The role of chromium: solid solution strengthening, passivation; improve corrosion resistance and high temperature oxidation resistance; excess chromium easily forms chromium carbide and chromium boride hard phases with carbon and boron to improve alloy hardness and wear resistance .


The role of molybdenum element: large atomic radius, large distortion of the crystal lattice after solid solution, significantly strengthening the alloy matrix, improving the high temperature strength and red hardness of the matrix; it can cut off and reduce the network structure in the coating; improve the resistance to cavitation , Erosion ability nickel-based precision alloy.


Including nickel-based soft magnetic alloys, nickel-based precision resistance alloys, and nickel-based electric heating alloys. The most commonly used soft magnetic alloy is Permalloy with about 80% nickel. Its maximum permeability and initial permeability are high, and its coercivity is low. It is an important core material in the electronics industry. The main alloying elements of nickel-based precision resistance alloys are chromium, aluminum, and copper. This alloy has high resistivity, low temperature coefficient of resistivity and good corrosion resistance, and is used to make resistors. Nickel-based electric heating alloy is a nickel alloy containing 20% chromium. It has good oxidation and corrosion resistance and can be used for a long time at a temperature of 1000 to 1100 ℃.


Nickel-based shape memory alloy

A nickel alloy containing 50(at)% titanium. The recovery temperature is 70°C, and the shape memory effect is good. A small change in the ratio of nickel-titanium components can change the recovery temperature within the range of 30 to 100°C. It is mostly used in the manufacture of automatic opening structural parts used in spacecraft, self-exciting fasteners used in the aerospace industry, artificial heart motors used in biomedicine, etc.

Affected by the present complex international situation and the epidemic, the future of global financial markets, futures markets, and stock markets is still highly uncertain. For this reason, I suppose the price of the Inconel718 powder would continue to rise.
