What is the composition of Inconel


(1998)

Could someone please provide me with a breakdown of materials in Inconel? (Including percentages of each).I am told that it contains: nickel,chrome,columbium and titanium. Is this correct and are there any other constituents? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I seem to remember , at college, being told that the name "Inconel" was actual made up from some abbreviations, possibly of metals. Does anybody know where the name "Inconel" actually came from ? Thanks, Colin.
