Monel® Metal Alloys


Monel® (cupronickel) is a metal superalloy that contains approximately 65-70% nickel, 20-29% copper, and 5% manganese. Monel® nickel-copper alloy materials display a strong resistance to chemical corrosion, salt water, acids, alkaline solutions, and are commonly utilized in highly corrosive environments. Monel® metal alloys are most utilized in the oil, marine, and chemical processing industries.

Magellan Metals is your direct Monel® metal supplier. We provide custom work, short lead times, and quick delivery on all types of large or small quantities of Monel® shapes including tube, pipe, wire, sheet, and plate. We are also ISO Certified and provide advanced design expertise for all your metal alloy material needs.

Monel® for Highly Corrosive Environments


Magellan Metals offers Monel® nickel-copper alloys in a wide range of formats including wire, tube, plate, sheet, pipe fittings, bar, flanges, and more. View the individual product pages below for more information about the chemical analysis, available formats, and applications for each grade of Monel® we offer.

Monel® 400

Corrosion resistant Monel® 400 provides good weldability and moderate to high strength metal characteristics. Monel® 400 is resistant to sea water, high temperature steam, caustic solutions, and salt. Monel® 400 Series is extremely useful in temperatures up to 1000°F (538°C) and high temperature steam atmospheres.

Monel® R405

Monel® R405 is the free machining version of the 400 Series. The added sulfur act as chip breakers during machining, providing excellent strength, corrosion resistance, and weldability. Monel® R405 is commonly utilized within marine applications and other non-oxidizing chlorine solutions.

Monel® K500

Combining corrosion resistance with added strength and hardness, Monel® K500’s increased property features are obtained by adding aluminum and titanium to the nickel-copper base. Monel® K500 is highly suitable for a wide range of corrosive applications including centrifugal pump shafts.

Monel® Material Advantages

At Magellan Metals, we stock three unique Monel® alloys. Each alloy provides its own unique sets of features, depending on the application. Monel® metal materials provide the following beneficial qualities:
  • High corrosion resistance
  • Excellent strength
  • High alkali resistance
  • Malleable
  • Good resistance to acids

Monel® Nickel-Copper Metal Alloy for Corrosion Resistant Applications

Monel® superalloys are commonly utilized in environments and applications that require high corrosion resistance and increased strength. Direct applications include:
  • Marine components
  • Pump shafts
  • Chemical processing equipment
  • Heat exchangers
  • Valves and fittings

Monel® vs Stainless Steel

When comparing Monel® and stainless steel it is important to note that both have corrosion resistant properties. However, Monel® provides increased corrosion protection against acids, alkalis, and chemicals in high temperature environments. Since Monel® is a superalloy, provides enhanced characteristics, and is often used in more volatile applications, it is generally more expensive than stainless steel.

Monel® Metal Alloy Supply Quantities for Single Items or Full Bills

At Magellan Metals, we can supply single items or full bills on any of our Monel® alloy materials. No inquiry is too small. We offer quick responses to customer inquiries and specialize in the rapid delivery of both large and small quantities of Monel® nickel-copper alloy metal materials.
