The increased demand for greater reliability of critical components operating in marine environments necessitates the use of higher quality materials. While high nickel alloys are, in general, more expensive than conventional materials of construction, their high corrosion resistance and good mechanical properties justify the additional cost, particularly when the high cost of labor to fit replacements and the loss of earnings incurred during breakdown are considered. This article describes various uses for high nickel alloys in the marine environment, with the manner of construction and an account of the performance of the various alloys included in the descriptions.
