Monel is a high nickel alloy that is resistant to corrosion & acids with an added advantage of greater strength. Commonly used in highly corrosive conditions like for some marine uses and industrial uses. We offer Monel products in various grades and forms like pipes, tubes, coils, sheets, plates, plates, bars, rods, flanges, fasteners and pipe fittings.
Monel is an alloy (i.e. combination of two or more elements of which at least one is a metal, and where the resultant material has metallic properties). It is based on nickel (65-70%) and copper (20-29%) and also contains iron and manganese (5%) and other compounds.
Monel was discovered by Robert Crooks Stanley who worked for the International Nickel Company (INCO) in 1901. The new alloy was named in honor of the president of the company, Ambrose Monell.
There are different commercial types of Monel such as Alloy 400, Alloy 401, Alloy R-405, Alloy 450, Alloy K-500, Monel 404 Copper-Nickel Alloy. Standard product forms are round, hexagon, flats, forging stock, pipe, tube, plate, sheet, strip, and wire.
