Lightning Bolt and Supply excels at high nickel alloys such as
Inconel™ and Monel™.
Monel™ is an alloy composed of nickel (65-70%), copper (20-29%), and
also contains iron, manganese, and other compounds. There are
different commercial types of Monel such as Alloy 400, Alloy 401,
Alloy R-405, Alloy 450, Alloy K-500, Monel 404 Copper-Nickel Alloy.
Monel is highly resistant to corrosion. It is resistant to corrosion
and acids, and some alloys can withstand a fire in pure oxygen.
Monel's corrosion resistance makes it ideal for marine applications
such as piping systems, pump shafts, seawater valves, trolling wire,
and strainer baskets. Some alloys are completely non-magnetic and
are used for anchor cable aboard minesweepers, housings for
magnetic-field measurement equipment, and have applications in the
oil drilling industry.
