What is Monel Metal?
- Monel metal is commonly used in applications with highly corrosive conditions. Small additions of aluminum and titanium form an alloy (K-500) with the same corrosion resistance. However, with much greater strength due to gamma prime formation during ageing, this metal is typically much more expensive than stainless steel due to its strength and other monel steel properties.
- What is Monel made of? — Monel is a group of nickel alloys, primarily composed of nickel and copper, as well as small amounts of iron, carbon, silicon, and manganese. Nickel alloys are known for their electronic properties, corrosion resistance, and strength, while copper alloys are known for their conductivity, corrosion resistance, and malleability.
- When was Monel discovered? — Monel was created by the International Nickel Company in 1901.
