Invar 36 is a nickel-iron, low-expansion alloy containing 36% nickel. It maintains nearly constant dimensions over the range of normal atmospheric temperatures, and has a low coefficient of expansion from cryogenic temperatures to about 500°F. The alloy also retains good strength and toughness at cryogenic temperatures. Invar 36 can be hot and cold formed and machined using processes similar to austenitic stainless steels.
- Low expansion rate up to 500°F
- Readily weldable
