Ductile Ni-Resist Iron

By alloying SG iron with Nickel, a stable austenitic nodular iron is produced, giving excellent resistance to growth and oxidation up to 925ºC.

The main application for Ni-Resist is in Gas Turbines and Automotive Exhaust and Turbocharger Systems, where temperature fluctuates between 500 and 1050ºC.  Ni-Resist is suitable in these applications because its ductility, hot strength and low coefficient of thermal expansion provide best resistance to such severe themal shocks.

Physical properties depend on operating temperatures and the exact nickel composition of the SG iron alloy. However typical values for the austenitic Ni-Resist grade D5S are detailed below:
