Nickel alloy, especially Alloy 625, is used widely in industrial applications such as aerospace, chemical, petrochemical and marine applications due to their good mechanical properties, excellent fabricability, weldability and good corrosion resistance. Especially, it is obviously applied in FPSO`s moon pool structure and caisson tubular of CPF under seawater environment. Recently, UNS S32654 was developed to substitute alloy 625 because of high cost price. In this study, mechanical properties and corrossive properties of UNS S32654 are reviewed and proposed its applications.
