Investment Casting with Monel

May 21, 2024

Investment casting with Monel alloys offers a variety of benefits. These nickel alloys were invented in 1901 and named after Ambrose Monell of the International Nickel Company. Monel alloys are made of up to 67% nickel, copper and smaller amounts of carbon, manganese, silicon and iron. They have exceptional resistance to corrosion and are typically stronger than pure nickel. They can resist fire in pure oxygen and harsh sea water erosion, which makes them ideal for punishing applications throughout many industries. Monel can be more costly than many alloys but delivers exceptional value and results.
