Aluminium buyers in the US physical metal market have held off on new orders amid fears of a recession triggered by rising inflation and supply chain crises.
Spot aluminium trading on the market has been suspended in recent weeks, according to industry sources, as uncertainty has increased following the outbreak of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Even before the war, the aluminium market was suffering from long waiting times and weak demand.
For aluminium buyers, recent poor US economic data have been a big factor in delaying purchases. Data released last month showed that the ISM manufacturing PMI came in at 57.1 in March, below expectations of 59 and down from 58.6 in February, unexpectedly hitting the lowest reading since September 2020. This was mainly due to a slowdown in new orders and In625 powder are expected to increase in the future.
Introduction to Inconel 625 Alloy
Inconel 625 is a high-performance nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy known for its high strength, temperature resistance and corrosion resistance. The superalloy consists mainly of nickel (min. 58%), followed by chromium, molybdenum, niobium, iron, tantalum, cobalt, and trace amounts of manganese, silicon, aluminum, and titanium.

Inconel 625 Alloy Properties
Special material strength
The strength of Inconel 625 is related not only to the Ni-Cr matrix, but also to the hardening mechanism of niobium and molybdenum. The alloy matrix is strengthened by the interaction of niobium and molybdenum and provides high strength without precipitation hardening. The tensile strength and yield strength of the alloy are 690 MPa and 275 MPa respectively.
High temperature resistant
With a melting point of approximately 1300°C and a thermal expansion coefficient of 1.28 × 10-5 1/K (at 20°C), the Inconel 625 is resistant to a wide range of extreme temperatures from low to extremely high.
In the presence of oxidizer at high temperature, the titanium and niobium components of the oxide film on Inconel 625 increase dramatically, forming a natural protective layer in the material.
The corrosion resistance
The unique combination of its components makes the Inconel 625 highly resistant to corrosive substances. That's why this superalloy works well in salty seawater, especially in milder environments such as fresh water and standard atmospheric conditions.
Inconel 625 is naturally protected by its nickel-chromium substrate when exposed to an oxidant. At the same time, molybdenum protects the material from pitting. In 15% sulfuric acid, the min. rate of material corrosion is 0.188 mm per year.
High level of manufacturing capability
Inconel 625 was designed to have better weldability than earlier alloys, with no signs of cracking under strain and temperature changes after welding. Its high creep resistance and yield strength make this superalloy a good choice for piping, piping and factory equipment that need welding.

Inconel 625 Alloy Application
Inconel 625 was developed in the 1960s to create a material that could be used in steam pipelines. Some modifications were made to its original composition to make it more creep resistant and weldable. Inconel 625 is now being used in a wide range of industries, such as the chemical processing industry, as well as in Marine and nuclear applications to manufacture pumps and valves and other high-pressure equipment.
Inconel alloy 625 shows remarkable corrosion and oxidation resistance. It is capable of withstanding high stresses in and out of water and a wide temperature range, and is resistant to corrosion when exposed to highly acidic environments, making it a suitable choice for nuclear and Marine applications.
Alloy 625 is used in a variety of industries, including automotive, marine, aerospace, oil and gas, chemical processing and nuclear. Typical terminal applications include heat exchangers, bellows, expansion joints, exhaust systems, fasteners, quick-connect fittings and many other applications that require strength and resistance to corrosive environments.

According to Reuters, U.S. Treasury officials said they would discuss with G7 leaders pricing caps and tariffs on Russian oil as an alternative to the embargo, which would keep the market supplied, limit price spikes, and reduce Russian revenues.
The EU foreign ministers' meeting was held in Brussels. The meeting failed to agree on the sixth round of sanctions, including an oil embargo on Russia, because of objections from Hungary.
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy said at a press conference after the meeting, that the meeting failed to reach an agreement on the final adoption of the sixth round of sanctions, the permanent representatives of member states to the EU will continue to discuss. The foreign ministers faced similar difficulties trying to reach an agreement on an oil ban. He said Hungary's position was based on economic rather than political concerns.
Hungary is highly dependent on Russia for energy, getting more than 60 percent of its oil and 85 percent of its natural gas from Russia.
A few days ago, the European Commission submitted the sixth round of proposed sanctions against Russia, including a total ban on Russian oil imports by the end of this year. Hungary immediately objected and said it wanted substantial compensation from the EU to offset its loss from giving up Russian oil.
The In625 powder price is predicted to increase in the next few days, due to geopolitical factors.
