We’re meeting the needs of automotive manufacturers for stronger, more corrosion-resistant alloys to boost performance and meet regulatory requirements.
New engine ratings and pollution control requirements are creating new applications for INCOLOY®, INCONEL® and NIMONIC® alloys.
Applications include exhaust systems, exhaust valves, spark plugs, ignition equipment, sensors, electrical and electronic switchgear and safety devices.
Catalytic converters use INCONEL® alloy 601 and age-hardenable INCONEL® alloy X-750 to resist thermal and mechanical fatigue at over 1,600° F.
Special Metals Corporation’s high-temperature alloys serve the automotive parts industry in heat-treating equipment.
