Astrolite® Alloys, a division of Tricor Metals is now stocking ATI 718Plus®
ATI 718Plus® (AMS 5964, UNS N08818) is an alloy designed for aerospace applications. The alloy was designed to combine the good processibility and weldability of alloy 718, with the temperature capability nearing that of Waspaloy.
Rick Barnes, Astrolite’s GM, reported that the stocking of ATI 718Plus® welding wires came about from a small niche of aerospace turbine engine customer’s requests over the past several months. He said that ATI 718Plus® has been reported to combine the good processibility and weldability of alloy 718, with the temperature capability nearing that of Waspaloy.
“We are just doing our best to hear and respond to our customer’s needs. There seems to be a small, but hopefully growing, niche of welding applications that will benefit from ATI 718Plus® wire. What we try to do at Astrolite is to keep the broadest and deepest welding wire inventory fully documented, in the proper quality, in order to best support our customers in the aerospace welding market. This is not always easy. But we have a strong, dedicated, and resourceful team here. We love what we do. And we have some really great customers.”
