For stationary gas turbine vanes IN 939 was evaluated very thoroughly in Europe as a promising hot corrosion resistant nickel base alloy.

This paper shows examples of properties and behavior of IN 939 from literature and from actual application in stationary gas turbines.

After long-term operation in stationary gas turbines vanes are analysed to show the type of oxide scale formation, the hot corrosion attack and phase stability. The alloy IN 939 exhibited excellent hot corrosion resistance under severe environmental conditions comparable to that of commercial hot corrosion protective coatings.

Phases are described developed after casting and during heat treatment and sensitivity towards M-phase formation is briefly discussed. Creep and fatique data of IN 939 are compared with IN 738 LC as well as the hot corrosion behavior.
