Astrolite® Alloys is now stocking ATI 718Plus®

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.”

Tricor Metals Texas Div. – Hurricane Harvey flooding

We are grateful for so many customers, suppliers, and friends expressed concern for our Conroe employees.

All of our Conroe employees are safe.  Our plant and offices are dry – well above the flood level.   We are open, with light-staffing as our employees struggle with flood-related issues and impassable roadways.

We expect continued flooding and particularly logistical challenges until the roadways are clear and things can get back to normal.  No more rain please.
