# Hot Worked Nickel Alloy 600

Hot worked nickel 600 is nickel 600 in the hot worked condition. The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare hot worked nickel 600 to: wrought nickels (top), all nickel alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
