After Russia pledged to scale back its military operations around Kyiv and in northern Ukraine, the prices of most industrial metals fell, led by aluminum, showing people's concerns for supply shortage eased.
At an earlier time, the West imposed sweeping sanctions on Russia for its invasion of Ukraine, which aroused concerns about the supply problem because Russia is a major producer of nickel, aluminum, and copper.
Russia is also a major gas supplier to Europe, where potential supply disruptions are seen as hitting power-intensive aluminum and zinc production.
"Hopes that Russia and Ukraine will reach an agreement to end the conflict have led to a sudden change in prices," said one metals analyst.
The prices of other commodities like the Alloy Inconel718 are still very uncertain.
What is Nickel-based Super Alloy Inconel718:
Inconel 718 or In718 is a nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy. It is an oxidation-resistant and corrosion-resistant material ideal for use in extreme environments under pressure and heat. In718 was invented in the early 1960s in INCO Huntington Alloys (now Special Metals Co.) and used in turbine parts manufacturing. Since then, In718 has become the most widely used nickel-based superalloy in the history of aero-engines. The unique alloy composition of In718 enables it to have good comprehensive properties, namely high strength, creep resistance, etc. Especially under 650℃, it has good stability in terms of mechanical properties. Many parts of modern aero-engines, such as turbine discs, blades, brakes, shafts, stators, seals, supports, pipes, fasteners, are made of In718.
Properties of Nickel-based Super Alloy Inconel718:
When heated, a thick and stable passivating oxide layer is formed on the surface of the alloy, protecting the surface from further erosion. It exhibits high yield, tensile, and creep fracture properties at high temperatures. Inconel718’s high-temperature strength is developed by solid solution strengthening or precipitation hardening. Inconel718 has good comprehensive properties in the temperature range of -253 ~ 700℃ (1290°F). Its yield strength below 650℃ ranks first among the deformation superalloys. It has good fatigue resistance, radiation resistance, oxidation resistance, corrosion resistance, and good machining and welding performance. Various complex-shaped parts can be produced with Inconel718, and thus Inconel718 is widely used in aerospace, nuclear energy, petroleum industry, and extrusion die in the above temperature range.
Applications of Nickel-based Super Alloy Inconel718:
Chemical processing;Gas turbine blades, seals, and combustors;High-temperature fasteners;Pressure vessels;Aerospace industry, for constructing heat resistant turbines;Low-temperature storage tanks;Nuclear energy industry;Petroleum industry.

At a regular press conference held by the Ministry of Commerce on March 31, a media question was raised: The COVID-19 outbreak has led to the shutdown of production in many parts of China. What impact will it have on China's foreign trade enterprises as a whole and micro, small and medium-sized foreign trade enterprises?
In this regard, the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Commerce said that the Ministry is closely following the impact of the epidemic on foreign trade enterprises, especially small, medium and micro foreign trade enterprises. As far as we can see, some foreign trade enterprises are affected by the epidemic and are faced with periodic problems in production and operation, logistics and transportation. At the same time, problems such as rising raw material costs, slow cross-border shipping and supply chain bottlenecks have yet to be fundamentally alleviated, and foreign trade enterprises, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in particular, still face considerable operating pressure. The price of Alloy Inconel718 operated by foreign trade enterprises will also fluctuate with the changes of the epidemic. Contact us for the latest quotation on Alloy Inconel718.
