Alloy 725 is a corrosion-resistant, high-strength nickel-chromium-molybdenum-niobium alloy with a low carbon content.
The material has excellent resistance to a wide range of corrosive media and high mechanical properties, which are achieved thanks to ageing. In addition, UNS N07725 is exceptionally resistant to corrosion such as pitting, crevice and stress corrosion cracking.
The material has also proven itself in alkaline solutions and a variety of organic and mineral acids.
This is supported by high heat resistance, making the grade a true all-rounder in the oil and gas industry.
