Materials Tested

Nickel Base Alloys

With over 30 years’ experience and a state-of-the-art metallurgical laboratory, SGS MSi provides a comprehensive assessment of your nickel base alloy’s composition and performance.

A versatile element that can be alloyed with most metals, nickel has high thermal and electronic conductivity, as well as corrosion resistance.

Chemical analysis is valuable for determining whether the manufacturing process will change the structure of nickel alloys and other metals. It is also helpful for pinpointing material flaws that could lead to failure or substandard performance. When your nickel superalloy testing is complete, our chemists deliver a detailed, easy-to-understand report of all findings and recommendations.

An alternative to stainless steel, nickel superalloys possess the oxidation resistance, low thermal expansion and superior heat resistance required for a variety of industrial applications. Popular for the production of gas turbines, engines and other mission-critical products, these alloys include:

  • Alnico
  • Alumel
  • Chromel
  • Ferronickel
  • German Silver
  • Inconel
  • Mu-metal
  • Nichrome
  • Nitinol
  • Supermalloy
