Alloy 600 (UNSN06600)
Werkstoff 2.4816


The alloy 600 has outstanding corrosion resistance properties due to its combination of nickel content, chromium and iron. It is the high nickel content which provides the anti-corrosion properties whilst the high chromium content allows the alloy to be resistant to oxidation.
