Properties of Nickel-based Super Alloys
Gold is a high-quality hedge hedging tool, favored by investors. Especially in recent years, with the increasing instability of the world economy, gold has become one of the preferred asset allocations of investors because of its functions of hedging and fighting inflation.
Earlier, the worsening situation in Ukraine sent gold prices soaring to a two-year high of $2,070 an ounce. But gold, along with other commodities, fell back last week as conditions changed and bulls took profits, hitting a low of $1,895 an ounce. As of press time, gold was trading at $1,918 an ounce, down 7.9% from its March 8 peak. Rising gold prices may also have an impact on the Nickel-based Super Alloys prices.
According to China Business News, Goldman Sachs raised its gold price forecast in early March, considering Asian buyers' gold consumption demand, investment demand and central bank gold purchase demand continue to rise. Three -, six - and 12-month targets were raised to $2,300, $2,500 and $2,500 an ounce, respectively, from $1,950, $2,050 and $2,150. The last time all three accelerated was in 2010-11 when gold prices rose nearly 70%.
The World Gold Council has also noted that global gold demand is at its highest level in nearly two years, which is linked to a recovery in consumption and consumer sentiment to combat inflation.
The creep rupture strength can be a good indication that the creep rupture
life/γ-initial fraction diagram of each alloy series is different, but each
series may have a maximum value or exceed 75% (volume) in the vicinity. This
means that the creep rupture life depends partly on the hardening of the solid
solution and partly on the hardening of the γ-prime precipitation. When Cr in
γ'is replaced by W and Ta, the maximum solid solution hardening will be
achieved. In addition, in order to obtain maximum precipitation hardening, a
gamma prime fraction will be obtained. In some Ni-based superalloys, the
γ-primary fraction of the actual alloy at 1000ºC may be less than the design
Tensile properties The tensile properties of sample solutions aged under
various conditions at 900ºC have been observed. Obviously, these changes can be
well approximated by the linear function of the gamma prime fraction. The
results obtained from other series of alloys show that the linearity is
maintained in the range of γ-prime fraction of 50% to 80% (volume), which is
different from the case of creep rupture strength. The effect of solution
temperature is also linear. A higher solution temperature gives a higher yield
strength. The lower the solution temperature, the greater the tensile
elongation, but this trend no longer works below a certain temperature. The
solution treatment below 1080ºC has no beneficial effect on the tensile
elongation. For the effect of solid solution hardening and precipitation
hardening, it is obvious that W is the most effective method of solid solution
hardening, and Ta (a γ-primer forming agent) is less effective than W as a solid
solution hardening element.
The crucible test was used to evaluate the resistance to corrosion
resistance. A piece of alloy (diameter 6-8 mm, height 3-5 mm) in a salt mixture
(Na2SO4-25%NaCl) was kept in the air at 900ºC for 20 hours. After all the scale
is removed, the resistance is quantitatively determined by the metal loss. In
terms of morphology, thermal corrosion can be divided into three types. Type I:
Corrosion layer composed of Cr sulfide, Ni sulfide and porous oxide, Type II:
Thin and compact Cr2O3 corrosion layer, there is a small amount of sulfide or no
sulfide in the matrix, Type III: It is oxidized by three layers Corrosion layer
composed of Cr2O3, TiO2 and Al2O3 from the outside to the inside, a small amount
of chromium-rich sulfide is dispersed in the matrix. Regression analysis was
carried out on 42 alloys that produced Type I corrosion. The results show that
Hf-doped alloys with high Cr and Ti content (the most preferred in γ-primary
precipitation hardening alloys), and the addition of W, Ta or Mo is an essential
element to increase high-temperature strength. Extremely harmful to thermal

Since February, gold has enjoyed a smooth upward run on the back of surging US inflation and the brewing of war. While expectations of rate rises have also risen in tandem over this period, gold had been largely pre-priced and the underlying driver of tightening expectations had come from inflation continuing to rise to record highs. The risk aversion caused by the continued tension in the war also provided an important short-term support for gold. This will have a certain impact on the price of the Nickel-based Super Alloys and the market of the Nickel-based Super Alloys.
