Tensile strength of Nickel-iron

    Hi! I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but what the tensile strength of Nickel-iron, or where would I be able to find it?

    Is one referring to Invar? http://www.nickel-alloys.net/invar_nickel_iron_alloy.html

    Strength will depend on whether it is annealed (minimum strength) or cold-worked, with strength increasing as a function of cold-work.

    One should be able to find information at the Nickel Development Institute (NDI)

    or MatWeb, or suppliers

    Does the presence of Widmannstätten structure make nickel-iron brittler?
