ASTM: B 865
SAE AMS: 4676
Alloy K500 is a nickel-copper alloy with corrosion resistance similar to alloy 400 but with higher strength and
hardness which comes from its titanium and aluminium content. Alloy K500 has excellent dimensional stability
and low magnetic permeability. It also has excellent cryogenic properties. This alloy is used in similar
applications to Alloy 400 but where increased strength is required.
Alloy K500 can be strengthened by both cold working and precipitation hardening. The majority of our material
is stocked in the precipitation hardened condition for immediate despatch. Material in the Solution annealed
and precipitation treated condition is also available.
