UNS# NO5500

Nickel 500 (or Nickel K 500) achieves increased strength and hardness whilemaintaining the corrosion resistance exemplified by Nickel 400 by addingAluminum and Titanium and tightly controlling the thermal processing. Thisthermal processing, often referred to as ‘aging’ or ‘age hardening’, formsmicroscopic substructures within the material that are absent in many other Nickelgrades. Applications include those that combine needs for exceptional corrosionresistance found in Nickel alloys with strength requirements that exceed those ofNickel 400 & 405.

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