The PREN value of Inconel 625 is about 40, which is much better than austenitic stainless steel grade 316, which sums up to 20. A higher PREN value indicates that the alloy has a higher chance of resisting pitting. A PREN score of over 35 would mean the material has excellent resistance to pitting. Pitting resistance behaviour of the Inconel 625 Fasteners is attributed to the addition of molybdenum to its alloy.

Inconel 625 Fasteners

Fasteners produced from Wrought non-ferrous alloy grades such as the Inconel 625 are covered by the specification ASTM F468. While any fastener manufactured under this specification for e.g. - ASTM F468 uns n06625 nuts are required to conform to the specified chemistry, a set of mechanical tests are also to be conducted on these fasteners. Per usual, the tests undergone by the Inconel 625 hex bolt in order to determine its mechanical properties include - hardness test, a test for both tensile strength and yield strength in addition to a test fo elongation.

The fasteners like the Inconel 625 stud bolts could be either cold formed or they could be hot formed. Another option is that they could be machined from a suitable material. This corrosion resistant, Inconel 625 threaded rod is used to stabilise objects produced from either metal, wood, or any other materials that are typically seen in applications involving building, plumbing and general maintenance. Virtually immune to chloride stress related corrosion cracking the Alloy 625 washers are a thin disk shaped object that can be used to evenly distribute the load or stress of a threaded nut and bolt.
