ASTM B168 AMS 5540 Inconel 600 UNS N06600 Steel plate sheet coil
Inconel 600 is a unique nickel-chromium alloy that is known for its oxidation resistance at higher temperatures. It is highly versatile and can be used in everything from cryogenics to applications that present elevated temperatures up to 2000°F (1093°C).

Inconel is used in the aerospace industry during applications where intensely high temperatures can be present, such as in jet engines. Under high heat, Inconel forms a protective oxide layer that makes it heat-resistant. Additionally, these alloys are highly resistant to pressure, oxidation and corrosion.
For instance, Inconel 625 has a nickel content between the range of a minimum of 58% and this means that it thus falls in the middle of the 330 and 600 alloys. On the other hand, Alloy 600, has a nickel content of a minimum of 72%. ... As compared with other alloys of Inconel, Grade 625 is pretty easy to weld.
Inconel 625® has a higher tensile strength than grade 304 stainless steel, and does a better job of maintaining that strength at higher operating temperatures. ... This is because Inconel is stronger than stainless steel at high temperatures, while being more resistant to oxidation and scaling as well.
Resistant to a wide range of corrosive media. The chromium content gives better resistance than Alloy 200 and 201 under oxidizing conditions, at the same time the high nickel gives good resistance to reducing conditions.
Virtually immune to chlorine ion stress corrosion cracking.
Demonstrates adequate resistance to organic acids such as acetic, formic and stearic.
Excellent resistance to high purity water used in primary and secondary circuits of pressurized nuclear reactors.
Little or no attack occurs at room and elevated temperatures in dry gases, such as chlorine or hydrogen chloride. At temperatures up to 550C in these media, this alloy has been shown to be one of the most resistant of the common alloys.
At elevated temperatures the annealed and solution annealed alloy shows good resistance to scaling and has high strength.
The alloy also resists ammonia bearing atmospheres, as well as nitrogen and carburizing gases.
Under alternating oxidizing and reducing conditions the alloy may suffer from selective oxidation.
