Monel® is a nickel-copper alloy that exhibits high mechanical strength and toughness. It performs well in a wide range of temperatures. Monel® has good corrosion resistance and superior resistance to hydrofluoric and sulfuric acids and corrosion from seawater. It can be fabricated using hot- and cold-working, machining, and welding. It performs well in a wide range of temperatures.
While Monel® is a more expensive material than stainless steel, its superior resistance to hydrofluoric and sulfuric acids and seawater corrosion make it an effective alternative for marine, oil & gas, and chemical applications. In addition, its ability to perform well in high-temperature environments makes it an ideal material for certain aerospace and oilfield applications.
