Alloy K-500

Alloy K-500 is a nickel-copper alloy, which combines the excellent corrosion resistance of Alloy 400 with increased strength and hardness using a thermal process known as age conditioning. K-500 provides approximately 3 times the yield strength of alloy 400.

By adding Aluminum and Titanium to this nickel/copper alloy, followed by an age hardening process, this enhances the physical properties, giving the material greater strength and hardness.
