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.
