UNS# NO5500

Nickel 500 (or Nickel K 500) achieves increased strength and hardness while maintaining the corrosion resistance exemplified by Nickel 400 by adding Aluminum and Titanium and tightly controlling the thermal processing. This thermal processing, often referred to as ‘aging’ or ‘age hardening’, forms microscopic substructures within the material that are absent in many other Nickel grades. Applications include those that combine needs for exceptional corrosion resistance found in Nickel alloys with strength requirements that exceed those of Nickel 400 & 405.

Nickel 500 has approximately 3 times the yield strength and double the tensilestrength when compared with Nickel 400.
