What is Inconel 718 used for?
U.S. natural gas futures rose about 5 percent to a near nine-week high as global energy prices surged on concerns over a pricing plan for energy exports, keeping U.S. LNG export demand near record highs. U.S. natural gas prices have risen despite forecasts of mild weather and lower-than-expected demand, which will allow utilities to fill up storage facilities next week. On Wednesday, Germany launched an emergency plan to manage gas supplies in Europe's largest economy. If natural gas supplies are interrupted or stopped, the German government could take unprecedented steps to limit electricity supply.
Affected by the increase in the price of natural gas, the price of the In718 powder will also increase.
What is Inconel 718
Inconel 718 or In718 is a nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy resistant to various corrosion conditions, pitting, and crevice corrosion.
Inconel 718 superalloy has been used in aeroengines for half a century. In718 has become the most widely used nickel-based superalloy in the history of aero engines since it was invented in the United States in the early 1960s in The INCO Huntington Alloy (now Special Metals Co.) and used in turbine parts manufacturing.
Inconel 718 Key Properties
The unique alloy composition design of In718 gives it good comprehensive properties, such as high strength, creep resistance and fatigue life, good ductility, and excellent oxidation resistance. Especially below 650℃, its mechanical properties have good stability.

Inconel 718 Application
Many parts of modern aero engines, such as turbine discs, blades, brakes, shafts, stators, seals, supports, pipes, fasteners, etc., are made of In718. In addition, In718 is also used in nuclear reactors (heat exchanger pipe), sub (propeller blades, quick disconnect device, auxiliary propulsion motor), chemical (vessels, pumps, valves, pipe), power (industrial gas turbine), the oil and gas industry (underground pipelines, wellhead hardware, torch arm).
Inconel 718 Composition
What is Superalloy
Superalloy refers to a kind of metal material based on iron, nickel, and cobalt, which can work for a long time at high temperatures above 600℃ and under certain stress.
It has high high-temperature strength, good oxidation and corrosion resistance, good fatigue performance, fracture toughness, and other comprehensive properties. Superalloy with a single austenite structure has good stability and reliability at various temperatures. Superalloys are widely used in aviation, aerospace, petroleum, chemical, and ship.
According to the matrix elements, superalloys are divided into iron base, nickel base, cobalt base, and other superalloys. The use temperature of iron base superalloy can only reach 750-780℃ in general. For heat-resistant parts used at higher temperatures, people use nickel base and refractory metal-based alloy. Nickel-based superalloys play a very important role in the whole field of superalloys. They are widely used to manufacture the hottest parts of aviation jet engines and various industrial gas turbines.

According to Reuters, U.S. Treasury officials said they would discuss with G7 leaders pricing caps and tariffs on Russian oil as an alternative to the embargo, which would keep the market supplied, limit price spikes, and reduce Russian revenues.
The EU foreign ministers' meeting was held in Brussels. The meeting failed to agree on the sixth round of sanctions, including an oil embargo on Russia, because of objections from Hungary.
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy said at a press conference after the meeting, that the meeting failed to reach an agreement on the final adoption of the sixth round of sanctions, the permanent representatives of member states to the EU will continue to discuss. The foreign ministers faced similar difficulties trying to reach an agreement on an oil ban. He said Hungary's position was based on economic rather than political concerns.
Hungary is highly dependent on Russia for energy, getting more than 60 percent of its oil and 85 percent of its natural gas from Russia.
A few days ago, the European Commission submitted the sixth round of proposed sanctions against Russia, including a total ban on Russian oil imports by the end of this year. Hungary immediately objected and said it wanted substantial compensation from the EU to offset its loss from giving up Russian oil.
The In718 powder price is predicted to increase in the next few days, due to geopolitical factors.
