K-500 Nickel/Super Alloy
Monel® K500 is a nickel-copper alloy with increased properties obtained by adding aluminum and titanium and by age hardening. Alloy K-500 has approximately three times the yield strength and double the tensile strength when compared with alloy 400. Plus, it can be further strengthened by cold working prior to precipitation hardening. The strength of this nickel steel alloy is maintained to 1200° F but stays ductile and tough down to temperatures of 400° F. Its melting range is 2400-2460° F.
