Monel supplier in India

What is the Monel material's corrosion resistance?

Monel belongs to the nickel alloy group that also has copper and small amounts of carbon, manganese, iron and silicon in the composition. Monel metal is resistant to corrosion in various aggressive mediums, which includes rapidly flowing seawater. Apart from marine environments, monel can also be used in different acidic and alkaline solutions. Monel supplier in India recommends it for outdoor applications as they can resist atmospheric, pitting and crevice corrosion. They can also withstand different oxidizing and reducing environments.

What is the price of Monel per kg?

Monel material price is quite expensive as it costs around 5 to 10 times more than nickel or copper cost. This is because the Monel material composition has costly metals and its unique characteristics make it irreplaceable by any cheaper alternatives. However, the exact Monel price per kg will vary with the suppliers, their internal costings and market conditions. Quantity purchased, customization requirements and delivery location also has an impact on Monel cost per kg. To get the exact price chart, contact reputed suppliers like Regent Steel & Engineering Co. Their Monel 400 price per kg is very competitive and they never compromise on quality.

What Monel alloy grades are there?

Monel is a great choice for commercial applications due to its resistance to corrosion and high temperature conditions. There are different monel grades like:

  • Monel 400 material properties are good resistance to general corrosion in alkaline and seawater environments.
  • Monel 401 has higher strength and better corrosion resistance properties than 400 grade.
  • Monel 404 is an upgraded version, with slightly higher nickel content.
  • Monel R-405 is the free machining version of 400 grade with added sulfur in the alloy
  • Monel k500 material properties include precipitation hardening with excellent strength and hardness.
  • Monel 502 comes with a higher content of aluminum and titanium in the alloy.
  • Monel 505 has added titanium but reduced aluminum content.

What are the composition and characteristics of Monel metal?

Monel metal composition mainly consists of nickel with high copper content and small amounts of iron, manganese, silicon, carbon, sulfur, aluminum and titanium. They show high strength and corrosion resistance in fresh and saltwater. Monel material properties also include excellent resistance to both high and low temperature conditions. They also possess high formability and can be welded easily using standard techniques.
However, the alloy 400 material has some limitations too.

  • They can get hardened during machining which makes working with it so difficult. This is why Monel R-405 grade was developed with enhanced machineabilities.
  • They are also susceptible to pitting on prolonged seawater exposure.
  • They can also acquire stress corrosion cracking and galvanic corrosion.
  • Finally, the Monel material price is quite high which might not fit everyone's budget.
compare Monel and Hastelloy
  • Monel and Hastelloy have different chemical compositions.
  • Monel shows better corrosion resistance but has a lower melting point.
  • Hastelloy can withstand higher temperatures without losing its strength or mechanical properties.
  • Monel has a low voltage coefficient and Hastelloy is preferred for most oxidizing environments.
What are the uses for the alloy 400 material ?

Monel 400 chemical composition is such that it possesses high resistance to corrosion and toughness. This is why they are often used in chemical processing and marine industries. Propeller shafts, heat exchangers, valve stems, petroleum stills, etc., are some of the equipment where they are used.
