Monel® K500 Alloy (UNS N05500)

Strong, corrosion resistant, fatigue resistant

Stainless Steel Products manufactures Monel ® K500 alloy in round wire, flat wire, cut to length for the performance you need for the most demanding uses.

MONEL® is a registered trademark of Special Metals Corporation

Attributes

Monel ® K500 alloy is one of the most popular corrosion-resistant alloys and offers a long list of benefits when made into wire: Through the addition of aluminum and titanium in a precipitation hardening process, Monel ® K500 alloy is 3x stronger (yield strength) and 2x harder (tensile) than Monel ® 400 alloy. It is just as corrosion resistant.
