Motorsport Exhaust Systems
Many properties makes an alloy versatile but one of these that’s so attractive to the motorsport industry is super ductility – deep draw quality or extra formability characteristic that is useful for exhaust systems and its connectors. Super ductility helps a product design engineer achieve the creation of convoluted parts that makes up the exhaust systems – which are necessary for motorsport engines to optimise their performance and efficiencies.
The motorsport industry creates exhaust system parts mainly with mechanical properties and architecture in mind, and then it’s the job of materials engineers to select alloys that makes it a successful reality.
Material properties including:-
- Super ductility
- High temperature strength
- High temperature oxidation resistance
These unique properties all play into the selection criteria in which NeoNickel alloy 625 (UNS N06626) is often an alloy of choice.
These properties means that alloy 625 (UNS N06626) can be cold formed or worked – especially as it employs hydroforming technology, press forming technology, etc.
NeoNickel has worked with fabricators and engineering companies in selecting and providing alloy 625 UNS N06626, alongside value added cutting services and polishing.
NeoNickel application engineers can work with product teams to offer materials selection advice, to reduce cost and provide confidence for material use in application.
