(Nickel 825) Strip, Coil, Foil, Wire, AMS 5542, ASTM B424


Chemical processing components, pollution control, oil and gas recovery, pickling tank parts and nuclear fuel processing 


lncoloy® 825 is an austenitic nickel-iron-chromium-molybdenum-copper alloy containing high levels of chromium, nickel, copper and molybdenum to provide high levels of corrosion resistance to both moderately oxidizing and moderately reducing environments. The alloy high level of nickel in combination with the level of molybdenum and copper produces substantially improved corrosion resistance in reducing environments compared to the standard stainless steels. As an austenitic, nickel-base alloy, the material is ductile over a wide range of temperatures from cryogenic to well in excess of 1000 °F (538 °C). Fabricability is typical of nickel-base alloys, with the material readily formable and weldable by a variety of techniques.

Additional Properties

Corrosion Resistance

Refer to NACE (National Associate of Corrosion Engineers) for recommendations. 


#1 - Hot rolled annealed and descaled. It is available in strip, foil and ribbon. It is used for applications where a smooth decorative finish is not required. 
#2D - Dull finish produced by cold rolling, annealing and descaling. Used for deep drawn parts and those parts that need to retain lubricants in the forming process.  #2B - Smooth finish produced by cold rolling, annealing and descaling. A light cold rolling pass is added after anneal with polished rolls giving it a brighter finish than 2D. 
#BA- Bright annealed cold rolled and bright annealed 
#CBA- Course bright annealed cold rolled matte finish and bright anneal 
#2 - Cold Rolled 
#2BA- Smooth finish produced by cold rolling and bright annealing. A light pass using highly polished rolls produces a glossy finish. A 2BA finish may be used for lightly formed applications where a glossy finish is desired in the formed part.  Polished - Various grit finish for specific polish finished requirements.  * Not all finishes are available in all alloys - Contact Ulbrich Sales for more information.

Wire Finishes

XC - Extra Clean Bright Annealed or Bright Annealed and Cold Rolled  Grease - Ultra bright finish (for decorative applications)  Soap - Soap coating on tempered wire to act as lubricant.  * Contact Ulbrich Wire for custom wire finishes.

Heat Treatment

lncoloy® 825 cannot be hardened heat treating.
