About Monel 400 Nickel Copper Alloy

Monel 400, primarily composed of nickel (67%) and copper (23%), exhibits high resistance to seawater, steam, and caustic solutions. Appreciated for its corrosion resistance, good weldability, and strength, it’s widely used in marine applications. Despite vulnerability to nitric acid and ammonia, it performs well in temperatures up to 1000°F. Its strength can be increased through tempering.
