Superalloys are world-wildly used not only for aerospace but also for chemistry, oil & gas and power engineering application. In recent years the 700 °C level Advanced Ultra-Super-Critical (A-USC) technology with high thermal efficiency is developing in the world to reduce the coal consumption and pollution emissions. Any kind of advanced ferritic and austenitic heat-resisting steels can not meet 700 °C A-USC technology requirement. In this case high quality Ni-base superalloys must be adopted for 700 °C A-USC technology. The research and development of Ni-Fe and Ni-base superalloys such as HR6W, GH2984, Haynes 230, Inconel 617/617B, Nimonic 263, Haynes 282, Inconel 740 and 740H are reviewed in this chapter.
