Waspaloy Aerospace Fasteners: An Introduction

Waspaloy, which is a registered trademark of United Technologies Corporation, is a nickel-based superalloy that consists of chromium, cobalt, age-hardening aluminum and titanium, among other metals.

It is supremely reliable and strong even at temperatures as high as 1600°F, making it the poster child of exotic materials. Therefore, Waspaloy is typically used in the hottest areas of an aircraft – those areas where inconel aerospace fasteners might fail.

Benefits of Waspaloy Aerospace Fasteners:

Unlike titanium bolts, Waspaloy aerospace fasteners are made from a patented exotic material, not a naturally occurring element.

  • – High temperature limits – 1600°F for stationary parts and 1200°F for rotating applications
  • – Low thermal conductivity
  • – Resistant to thermal cycling
  • – Superior stress rupture strength

Waspaloy Aerospace Fasteners are used for:

  • – Areas exposed to extreme heat for extended period of time
  • – Gas turbine blades, shafts, rings, seals and turbine disks
