Nilo® alloy 36/Invar® 36 is a nickel-iron alloy with 36% nickel. When used at a normal atmospheric temperature, it retains its dimensions to almost 100% as it has a low expansion coefficient from cryogenic temperatures to as high as about 260°C. Nilo® alloy 36/Invar® 36 also retains its good strength and resilience when exposed to low temperatures. (1.3912 | UNS K93600)
