This specification covers thoria-dispersion-strengthened nickel in the form of sheet and strip.
These products have been used typically for parts required to operate in the temperature range 1800 to 2400 degrees F (980 to 1316 degrees C), but usage is not limited to such applications. A protective coating is required for operation at such temperatures. Fusion welding of structural members is not recommended but the product can be brazed and resistance welded satisfactorily.
Products covered by this specification are radioactive. Applicable rules and regulations pertaining to handling of radioactive material should be observed.
