Nickel alloy fasteners are a group of materials that are comprised of varying percentages of nickel as the principal alloying base. Fasteners made from this material can be found in various equipment operating in extreme temperatures. They are often used for power-generation applications due to their outstanding performance across various corrosive environments. Such fasteners typically contain chromium and molybdenum, which provide excellent corrosion-resistant properties and high strength. Other elements such as copper, manganese, and silicon can also be added to the mix, which gives the alloy better workability and further increases its corrosion resistance levels.
Nickel alloy fasteners, such as Inconel and Hastelloy, are a superior choice for difficult-to-manufacture products that require superior corrosion, heat, and oxidation resistance. Nickel alloys can be hardened to a greater degree than other materials, making them ideal for various high-strength fastener applications. In addition to supporting aeronautical, energy-generation and military industries needing high-strength fasteners in extreme conditions, nickel alloy fasteners also offer high fatigue strength, making them useable in high-frequency vibration environments. The materials used in nickel alloy fasteners have excellent formability allowing the production of complex shapes like plates and customized thread forms with very tight tolerances that enhance performance and reliability. Whilst slightly more expensive than other options due to their relative rarity compared to common steels like 12L14 or 4140, the superior properties – sharp cutting edges, rigidity and hardness – offered by Nickel alloy fasteners more than compensate for the additional cost.
