Alloy K500 briefing paper - .PDF file.

Alloy K500 from Broder Metals is a nickel-copper alloy, precipitation hardenable through additions of aluminium and titanium. This alloy presents similar corrosion-resistant characteristics to Alloy 400 but with enhanced strength and hardness after precipitation hardening. However, Alloy K500 can be further strengthened by cold working before the precipitation hardening. Broder Metals supplies Alloy K500 material in both the cold-worked and hot-worked and aged condition to offer the best combination of mechanical properties when working in sub-zero temperatures or elevated ones up to about 480°C. It is these properties, along with Alloy K500’s very good corrosion resistance, that make the alloy a suitable for choice for use in marine and chemical environments.
