1.3912 / UNS K93600
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 (+ 260°C). The alloy also retains good strength and toughness at cryogenic temperatures. Used for standards of length, measuring devices, laser components, bi-metal thermostat strip, thermostat rods, and tanks and piping for storing and transporting liquefied gases.
