Monel is a trademark belonging to Special Metal Inc and applied to a family of nickel – copper alloys.
One of the main advantages of nickel-based alloys is their ability to operate at elevated temperatures compared with other alloys.
Nickel alloys will corrode in the same way as stainless steels if exposed to suitably corrosive environments.
Nickel is added to copper in order to greatly improve its strength and corrosion resistance.
Nickel based alloys have nickel as the main balancing metal and generally achieve both excellent temperature and corrosion resistance.
Duplex stainless steel is produced through a multi-stage steelmaking and forming process route.
As with all corrosion resistant alloys, duplex stainless steels can suffer corrosion when exposed to suitably corrosive conditions.
Stainless steels will work harden to some extent when subject to deformation i.e. bending, drawing, pressing.
Fermonic is a trademark belonging to Langley Alloys Ltd for high-performance austenitic stainless steels, such as our version of XM-19.
Stainless steels can be readily welded, with no great loss of corrosion performance or mechanical properties if undertaken properly.
