CWI Aerospace Alloys

Invar 36 : CWI Nickel Prime Series Invar 36 is a nickel-iron, low expansion alloy. It is typically used for applications where dimensional changes due to temperature must be minimal.

13-8 Mo : CWI Hi-Strength Series Stainless 13-8Mo is a precipitation hardenable stainless steel providing high strength and hardness along with good resistance against stress corrosion cracking.

A 286 : CWI Hi-Strength Series Stainless A286 is a precipitation-hardenable, iron-nickel-chromium alloy suitable for application that require high tensile strength as well as excellent oxidation and corrosion resistance.

Monel 400 : CWI Nickel Specialty Series Monel 400 is a nickel-copper alloy with superior corrosion resistance in a wide variety of media.

Monel K500 : CWI Nickel Specialty Series Monel K500 is a precipitation-hardenable nickel-copper alloy which combines the superior corrosion resistance of alloy 400 with an enhanced strength and hardness.

Inconel 600 : CWI Nickel Specialty Series Inconel 600 is a non-magnetic, nickel-chromium solid solution strengthened alloy with excellent carburization and good oxidation resistance at elevated temperature.

718 : CWI Nickel Specialty Series 718 is a precipitation hardenable nickel-based alloy designed to display exceptionally high yield, tensile and creep-rupture properties at temperature up to 1300°F (704°C).

316 L : The low carbon content in CWI Series Stainless 316L is intended to minimize the occurrence of grain boundary carbide precipitation.

302 HQ : CWI 302HQ [ UNS: S30430 / Euro:1.4567 ] is designed for severe cold heading application. The addition of copper reduces cold work hardening of this type of stainless steel.
