Monel Screws, Fasteners and Fixings
Monel alloys are nickel-based alloys that contain between 29% and 33% copper, and have been available since 1905.
In the early 1900’s it was used as roofing material, countertops, sinks and a number of other appliances but fell behind once the more versatile stainless steels were introduced in the 1950s.
There are a number of types of Monel, all of which contain up to 67% nickel – with some types containing iron, manganese, carbon or silicon. In some types, additions of aluminium and titanium increase strength.
There are a number of pros to using Monel fasteners, such as high corrosion resistance to acids and alkalis, a high mechanical strength, it’s ease of shaping and forming, as well as a relatively low cost alongside attractive appearance and finishes.
However, there are some disadvantages too. The machinability of Monel is poor because of a tendency to work-harden quickly. It is corrosion resistant under many circumstances but can corrode when exposed to certain substances. As well as this, the presence of Monel can lead to galvanic corrosion in certain conditions.
