What is Monel K-500 used for?

Monel™ K-500 (UNS N05500) is a nickel-copper alloy, age-hardened to achieve two to three times the strength of Monel 400. It retains these excellent mechanical properties up to about 650degC. It also exhibits excellent corrosion resistance in both chloride-containing and chemical environments. The combination of physical and mechanical properties means that it is widely used in a host of demanding applications.
