Nickel Aluminides

Nickel Aluminides, Al₃Ni, and Ni₃Al are intermetallic compounds that are useful because they are very strong and hard and melt only at very high temperatures. They also are widely used due to their corrosion resistance, low density, and easy production. A disadvantage is their brittleness at room temperature, which extends to high temperatures for Ni₃Al.
Nickel Aluminide, Al₃Ni, is a cermet, that can be flame sprayed, and whose strengthening γ’ phase precipitates in nickel-based superalloys, allowing for high-temperature strength up to 0.7-0.8 of its melting temperature.
Typical Applications

These nickel aluminides are used in everything from processing glass to making dies for forming beverage containers and other shapes from metal. They are also widely used in automobile and tool companies and in manufacturing rotating parts, dies, high-temperature wear-resistant parts, permanent molds, and turbocharger rotors.
