ASTM B166 UNS N06600 popularly known as Inconel 600 is generally cold-worked and recommended for applications that need to resist heat and corrosion. The alloy comes with good mechanical properties, which include high strength and workability.
The ASTM B166 UNS N06600 round bars are typically available within the size range of 5-500mm. They can be around 100 to 3000mm long or above. Clients can request to customize the size of the ASME SB166 round as per their specific application requirements.
The ASME SB166 UNS N06600 rod generally maintains a strict tolerance of the h9, h11 or k12 standards. This will ensure that the rods are manufactured precisely. The ASTM B166 cold drawn bar and rod come with a surface roughness of Ra ≤ 1.6 μm and offers a smooth finish. The hot rolled bars, on the other hand, might exhibit scale.
There are different types of finishes available for N06600 rods, like turned, ground and the UNS N06600 bright bars are mainly used for aesthetic purposes. All the product lines under the N06600 material like bars, rounds, etc., follow similar parameters that guarantee quality and consistency throughout.

Heat treatment is done on the B166 UNS N06600 flat bar so that they can achieve specific material properties. The procedure alters the microstructure of the N06600 material and enhances its mechanical properties. It can also help to relieve residual stress and optimize corrosion resistance properties.
Heat treating N06600 flat bar can also induce dimensional stability and through annealing, it can reduce hardness and improve ductility. Different types of heat treatment like age hardening, quenching, etc., are available and chosen according to the material properties and intended application.

A number of tests can be conducted on SB166 UNS N06600 hex bar to ensure its quality, suitability and compliance with international standards.
ASME SB166 N06600 rectangular bar material has high nickel content which means better corrosion resistance properties. They can resist temperatures up to 1093 ºC and has high strength along with Hot & cold workability. UNS N06601 has added aluminium and thus, they have better high temperature oxidation resistance up to 1024 ºC. They show high resistance to carburization and metallurgical stability.
ASTM B166 N06600 square bars are preferred by industries that require corrosion resistance, elevated temperature strength and reliable performance in harsh environments. They are found in aerospace, chemical processing, petrochemical, power generation, oil & gas, nuclear and automotive industries.
Inconel 600 is a non-toxic and food grade material which is why they are found in the food & beverage industries. They are also found in retorts, roller hearths and different furnace components for heat treating trays.
