What is Monel?

The Monel is a combination of Nickel and Copper, one of the most multipurpose and widely used nickel alloys. Monel has a superior strength than an unalloyed nickel. Monel has more than 60% of nickel content which offers intense resistance to a variety of corrosion conditions such as alkaline elements, salty water, acids, and atmospheric corrosion. Due to its magnetic quality, it can be used for the equipment processing chemical & hydrocarbon, marine engineering spares, etc.

The Monel alloy is also known as Nickel-copper alloy material as its main chemical components are nickel and copper. Monel material grades are inclusive of Monel400, Monel401, Monel404, MonelR405, and Monel K-500. The most commonly used Monel mesh is made using Monel 400 or Monel K-500 grade.

It has a high melting point of 1300 F to 1350 F and this enables Monel wire mesh products to be recommended for working under soaring temperature conditions. Due to this unique quality, it is being used in the oceanic investigation and the development of petroleum products.

Monel is made using alloy. Comparing to the common Stainless Steel Wire Mesh, Monel wire mesh offers superior heating quality and finds more uses in various heat exchange devices, heating equipment for boilers, etc.

Properties of Monel Wire Mesh:

  • High tensile mechanical strength in the freezing atmosphere, the strength can be increased by adding other additives and offering heat treatment.
  • Good weldability and resistance in corrosive conditions, static and running seawater.
  • Preventive against acidic and alkali media.
  • Can be cut, formed, and welded.
  • Cleanability and reusability.


Monel wire mesh is widely used in the following industries:

  • Industrial heat exchangers
  • Chemical and solvent industries
  • Deaerating heaters (To remove oxygen and other dissolved gases from boiler feed water)
  • Hydrocarbon processing equipment
  • Distillation of petroleum crude
  • Marine, oceanic, and aerospace engineering
  • Fittings and fasteners of Valves, pumps, shafts, etc.
  • Fresh water and fuel tanks, boiler feedwater heaters

Monel wire mesh is used to manufacture specifically designed screen baskets and strainers in various sizes for excellent filtration. Besides, it is being used for producing customized Mesh strip gaskets, used to provide electromagnetic pulse shielding. These mesh strip gaskets are flexible, cost-effective, and highly conductive.

The inclusion of Aluminium and Titanium adds extra strength to Monel. This alloy is resistant to spark, corrosion conditions, and magnetic power. Besides, it melts at a high temperature of +2400 F. Due to this quality, it is being used to manufacture propeller shafts for the different types of sea vehicles. It is also being used for the chemical process application of harsh chemicals.
