Chemical Etching with Inconel

Picking a metal that can withstand several compromising environments is crucial for part dependability and longevity. Inconel is a material that offers impressive strength, elemental resistance, and flexibility. 

E-Fab customers ask us to manufacture precision parts from Inconel for industrial, aerospace, electronics, and green energy applications. 

We welcome your questions about how to use Inconel for your parts. 

Types of Inconel We Use

Inconel is available in a few different grades, each offering unique benefits for the manufacture of precision metal parts.

Here are the most common types of Inconel we use:

600   601

Why Choose Inconel

High Tensile Strength
Corrosion Resistance
Temperature Flexibility
Environmental Resistance
Inconel 600 and Inconel 601 are metals suited for the most challenging environments, including high temperatures and installations where acid and chloride stress exists. The material is flexible enough for the photochemical etching of precision parts and strong enough for reliability and longevity.

E-Fab manufacturers are experts at etching and forming inconel to precise standards and specifications.

The flexibility and strength of Inconel make it a great choice for electron shields, high-strength control valves, mesh screens, and other precision parts used in the aerospace, electronics, and green energy industries.
