Waspaloy Nickel/Super Alloy
Waspaloy is an austenitic precipitation hardening, nickel-based alloy which has been used in high temperature applications, up to about 1800°F (980°C). The alloy has been used for gas turbine engine parts which require considerable strength and corrosion resistance at temperatures up to 1600°F (871°C). Waspaloy is usually vacuum-induction plus consumable electrode remelted.
Waspaloy alloy can be coldformed in the annealed condition, and may also be hot-formed at temperatures of 1900°F(1040°C) or above. Weldability us somewhat limited by susceptibility to strain age cracking under conditions of heavy restraint.
