HPM® 600 • UNS N06600

HPM® 600 is well suited for severe corrosive environments and is oxidation resistant through 2150°F. The strength can be increased by cold working. The material has good elevated strength retention through 800°F.

The alloy is readily formed in the annealed temper, and can be joined by the standard welding, brazing and soldering processes.

Available Sizes:

HPM® 600 is available from Hamilton Precision Metals as strip product in thicknesses from 0.0005” to 0.050” (0.0127 mm to 1.27 mm) and width up to 12” (304.8 mm). It is also available in foil as thin as 0.000100” (0.00254 mm) in widths of 4.0” (101.6 mm) maximum. The material conforms to ASTM B168, AMS 5540, MIL N 23228 and UNS N06600.
