Nickel Monel K500 is an age hardenable alloy that brings together the corrosion resistance of Monel 400 with high strength corrosion fatigue and erosion resistance. K500 has approximately three times the yield strength of Monel 400 with double the tensile strength. Cold working before precipitation hardening will make it stronger.
Monel K500 is spark resistant and non-magnetic to -200F.
