There are numerous advantages to Incoloy 825 (UNS n08825) over other nickel-iron-chromium alloys, such as molybdenum, copper, and titanium. It is an alloy that provides high levels of corrosion resistance to both moderately oxidizing and moderately reducing environments. It is similar to alloy 800, but it is more resistant to corrosion in aqueous environments.

There are two nickel alloys in the oil and gas industry that are very important. The most important are Inconel 625 and Incoloy 825 Seamless. As an austenitic nickel-iron-chromium-molybdenum-copper alloy containing high levels of chrome, nickel, copper, and molybdenum, Nickel 825 provides high corrosion resistance to both moderately oxidizing as well as moderately reducing environments. In addition to its exceptional resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking, this alloy also exhibits exceptional resistance to crevice corrosion and general corrosion due to its balanced alloying elements. As a result of the high level of nickel in this nickel alloy, together with the amounts of molybdenum and copper present in the alloy, it has significantly better corrosion resistance in environments that are highly corrosive, such as reducing environments. Titanium also contributes to the stability of the alloy against intergranular corrosion by being added to this alloy. The corrosion cracking caused by chloride stress corrosion cracking is a localized intergranular corrosion phenomenon that occurs when materials are subjected to high temperatures, oxygen, and chloride ions, such as seawater when they are put under tensile strength.

Typical for nickel alloys, the material is readily formable and weldable to a wide range of temperatures from cryogenic to well in excess of 1000°F (538°C).

With additions of molybdenum, copper, and titanium, Incoloy 825 is a nickel-iron-chromium alloy designed to provide exceptional corrosion resistance in many corrosive environments. In comparison with alloy 800, it has improved aqueous corrosion resistance. In addition to its excellent resistance to both reducing and oxidizing acids, it also exhibits excellent resistance to stress corrosion cracking, pitting, and crevice corrosion, as well as localized attack. A nickel steel alloy called alloy 825 composition has excellent resistance to sulfuric acid and phosphoric acid, which makes it ideal for chemical processing, pollution-control equipment, oil and gas well piping, nuclear fuel reprocessing, acid production, and pickling equipment.
