GET 3D Printing Material: IN738LC

Shanghai Truer Industrial Development Co., Ltd
3D Printing Nickel-based Alloy IN738 Powder


What is in738LC?

IN738 is a nickel-based precipitation-hardening equiaxial crystal casting high-temperature alloy, one of the best alloys in terms of resistance to thermal corrosion, with a service temperature of less than 900°C. The alloy composition and properties are comparable to those of the widely used IN738 alloy abroad, which contains a high element of chromium and contains elements of tantalum and niobium. The alloy has excellent resistance to thermal corrosion, a medium level of high temperature strength and good organisational stability.

    Most frequent questions and answers

    If you have questions or at any point or can’t find the answer you were looking for, call or email us directly at [email protected]. For issues about your orders or our refunds, please refer to our Team. Helping you answer all your questions and solving any problems you may have is our number one priority.

    We are the 100% manufacturer specialized in Additive Manufacturing.

    Sure. We accept custom orders and OEM/ODM.

    You can get a quote by visiting the Request a Quote page, requesting a quote on a product page, phone, email, or from our live chat. Based on a large variance of requirements from project to project, most quotations need to be prepared by a packaging estimator. RFQs can be emailed directly to [email protected].
    You will typically receive your quotation within 1-2 business days for most requests. RFQs and complex projects may require more time.

    High quantity orders generally net a lower cost-per-unit on all of our orders. For greater savings for your project, you can consult one of our Product Specialists for a customized strategy based on your business requirements and project goals.

    We make products easy for our customers. While the steps can differ from project to project, our typical process consists of the following stages:
    1.    Specification & Project Consultation
    2.    Quotation
    3.    Sampling and Prototyping
    4.    Production
    5.    Shipping and Fulfillment

    We offer a wide range of Additive Manufacturing such as SEBM, PREP and more than 40 different compositions of high-quality spherical metal powders, such as TiNi, TiTa, TiAl, TiNbZr and CoCrMo with fully customizable options.

    Most products need to be shipped by sea, but samples used only for testing may be shipped by courier and air to ensure timeliness. All of our products are carefully packaged with care to withstand the potentially harsh elements of travel. You can expect your products to arrive in the same condition they left our facilities.

    Production time can range from 5 to 25 business days depending on products type, requirements many other factors. Greater customization with more additional processes generally yields slightly longer production times. For your best estimate in the timeline, consult with your Product Specialist.

    While our products technically have no minimum order quantities, recommended MOQs are in place (which will differ based on products type, printing, or processes) to prevent individual unit prices from becoming too costly to recommend.

    The minimum order quantity we can usually provide is 1-20kg for samples(based on the detailed products) and 100-200kg for official orders. But it may vary by product, so, please check with your Product Specialist to learn the recommended MOQ of any of our products.
