Is INCONEL toxic?

Is INCONEL toxic?

Ingestion: Not a likely route of entry. Metal ingestion can cause toxic effects. Delayed effects: Inhalation of welding or spraying fumes may cause damage to the lungs and respiratory tract including but not limited to fibrosis of the lung which can reduce lung capacity and produce difficulty breathing.

What type of material is INCONEL 718?

nickel chromium material
INCONEL® alloy 718 (UNS N07718/W.Nr. 2.4668) is a high-strength, corrosion-resistant nickel chromium material used at -423° to 1300°F.

What is INCONEL 718 used for?

INCONEL alloy 718 is ideal for use in these circumstances. For example, it has been used in jet engine and high-speed airframe parts, including wheels, fasteners, instrumentation parts, bolts, spacers and buckets.

What is the HRC of INCONEL 718?

32 – 40 HRC
Inconel 718 NACE calls out for a different annealing temperature and chemistry while maintaining a hardness range from 32 – 40 HRC.

Is Inconel 718 toxic?

Ingestion: May cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Skin: Irritant to skin and mucous membranes. Inhalation: May cause irritation of respiratory tract.

What are the properties of Inconel 718?

Is Inconel considered steel?

Inconel 925: Inconel 925 is a nonstabilized austenitic stainless steel with low carbon content.

Is INCONEL 718 magnetic?

Inconel® Alloy 718 is non-magnetic. It maintains good corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance and is used for parts requiring high resistance to creep and stress rupture up to 1300°F (704°C) and oxidation resistance up to 1800°F (982°C).

Can welding Inconel make you sick?

Inhalation of metal oxide fumes due to heating beyond the boiling point in an oxidizing atmosphere, such as when smelting or welding, may cause substernal chest pain, cough, dyspnea and flu-like symptoms. The respiratory symptoms generally disappear in the exposed individual within 1-4 days.
