Material Spotlight-Monel K500

Monel K500 (UNS N05500) is an age harden-able, nickel- copper based alloy which combines excellent corrosion resistance and high strength. K500 is used extensively in the marine industry, in both military and commercial applications. It is also commonly used by the power generation, chemical processing, oil and gas, pulp and paper sectors as well. Due to its combination of high strength and corrosion resistance, K500 is extensively used for critical fastening applications where failure is not an option.
