The registered trademark name, Monel, is applied as the prefix name to several corrosion resistant alloys produced by Special Metals Corporation. These alloys are nickel-based and exhibit traits that include high resistance to atmospheric corrosion, salt water, and various acid and alkaline solutions.
Alloys of identical chemical and mechanical properties are available from other manufacturers and offer excellent alternatives to the various Monel® brand alloys.
The corrosion-resistant alloy is widely used in the marine, oil and chemical processing industries.
Mega Mex supplies Monel 400, K-500 & R-405. Most of these grades are available in the form of plate, sheet, pipe, tubing, fittings, bar, wire and rod.
Good resistance to acids such as hydrofluoric and sulfuric acid
Highly resistant to alkalis
Highly corrosion resistant
Stronger than steel
Pump shafts, oil-well tools, instruments, doctor blades and scrapers, springs, valve trim, fasteners, marine propeller shafts
Chemical and hydrocarbon processing equipment
Valves, pumps, shafts, fittings, heat exchangers
Monel was discovered by Robert Crooks Stanley who worked for the International Nickel Company in 1901. The new alloy was named in honor of the president of the company, Ambrose Monell.
