ARMI introduces new certified reference materials for Nickel alloys PE16,  617, 909, C-276 and Kovar®.

Nickel alloys for Gas Turbine blades

Nimonic alloy PE-16 is Ni-Cr-Mo alloy containing approximately 42-45% Ni, 15.5-17.5% Cr and 2.8-3.8%Mo.  This high temperature high strength alloy is commonly used in gas turbine and nuclear applications

Inconel 617 is a Ni-Cr-Co-Mo alloy containing approximately 44.5% Ni, 22-24% Cr, 10-15% Co and 8-10% Mo.  This alloy high temperature, high strength alloys is known for its corrosion resistance and is often used in aircraft and terrestrial gas turbine applications.

Incoloy® 909 is a Ni-Fe-Co alloy containing approximately 35-40% Ni, 12-16% Co and Fe as the balance.  This high strength alloy is known for its low coefficient of thermal expansion and is often used in gas turbine applications.

Alloy C-276 is a Ni-Mo-Cr alloy containing approximately 15-17% Mo, 14.5%-16.5% Cr with lesser amounts of Fe, W, Co, ad Mn and Ni as the balance.

Kovar® is a Fe-Ni-Co alloy containing approximately 29% Ni, 17% Co and Fe as the balance.  This alloy is known for its ability to make tight seals with glass and is often used in power tubes, microwave tubes and transistors.


These Nickel based CRM’s are very useful for Type Standardization, Positive Material Identification, grade matching or simply extending the range of your current calibration curves.


The reference materials are available in three forms:

  • 38mm diameter x3mm thick disks for EDXRF or WDXRF
  • 38mm diameter x 19mm thick disks for OE (Optical Emission)
  • 100g bottles of chips for ICP-OES and ICP-MS

You can learn more about these reference materials on our new product page where you can view and download the certificates of analysis.
