Inconel foil is a nickel-chromium alloy with high-temperature resistance and excellent corrosion resistance. It is typically used for making heat exchanger fins, electrical connectors, aircraft instrument parts, rocket casings, radiant tubes and nuclear reactor components. The composition of Inconel foil consists of at least 72% nickel and 15-17% chromium, along with other trace elements such as molybdenum, silicon, aluminium and titanium. This combination creates an alloy with outstanding mechanical strength even at high temperatures.
Inconel Foil is a high-performance alloy with excellent oxidation and corrosion resistance in temperatures up to 2000°F (1093°C). It is commonly used for annealing, electronic components, and heat shields. Its uses include turbine engine parts, cryogenic tanks, electrodes in electroplating baths, hot-gas filtration systems, and fuel cells. The properties of Inconel Foil make it highly resistant to carburization and sulfidation at elevated temperatures, which leads to its superior long-term performance.
