The registered trademark name, Monel, is applied as the prefix name to several corrosion resistant alloys produced by Special Metals Corporation. These alloys are nickel-based and exhibit traits that include high resistance to atmospheric corrosion, salt water, and various acid and alkaline solutions.
Alloys of identical chemical and mechanical properties are available from other manufacturers and offer excellent alternatives to the various Monel brand alloys.
The corrosion-resistant alloy is widely used in the marine, oil and chemical processing industries.
Anton supplies Monel 400, Monel 401, Monel 404, Monel 405, Monel 450, Monel K500, and Monel R405. Most of these grades are available in the form of plate, sheet, pipe, tue, bar, wire, rod, strip and foil.
