Monel® K-500 is an age-hardened nickel-copper alloy used in several industries and products. This alloy has good corrosion resistance and high strength. Monel® K-500 can withstand sub-zero environments and is non-magnetic. A few industries that utilize this alloy include:

  • Marine
  • Chemical processing
  • Food processing
  • Pharmaceutical

When compared to alloy 400, K-500 has significantly more yield strength and tensile strength. Cold working gives K-500 even more strength. A few end products that incorporate K-500 are:

  • Pumps and valves
  • Electronic components
  • Springs
  • Cables
