Environmental Resistance of Incoloy Alloy MA956

  • G. M. McColvin
  • G. D. Smith


An outline description of the manufacturing stages used in the production of INCOLOY* alloy MA956 is given. Recent mechanical property data, extending the already published data, is briefly reviewed emphasising the strength retention of the alloy at high absolute temperatures compared with its melting point.

Laboratory test data is used to characterize the high temperature oxidation and corrosion resistance of the alloy demonstrating the potentially wide range of applicability of the alloy.
