Nickel 500, or Nickel K500, is a nickel based copper alloy (63% Ni, 33% Cu) with additions of aluminium and titanium.This alloy provides the same corrosion resistance offered by the nickel alloy K400, strong ductility, and impressive impact strength. Thanks to the addition of Aluminum and Titanium, as well as a unique thermal hardening process, Nickel K500 offers incredible strength, hardness, and corrosion resistance. The “age hardening” thermal processing forms microscopic substructures within the alloy that are lacking in most nickel alloys. Because of its advanced physical properties, Nickel 500 is ideal for a variety of uses in the marine, chemical processing, and oil and gas industries.
When you need to combine exceptional corrosion resistance with strength requirements that exceed those of Nickel 400 and 405, K500 is an ideal solution. Nickel 500 has approximately three times the yield strength and double the tensile strength when compared with Nickel 400.
