Alloy 400 / Monel 400 / N04400 / 2.4360
Monel 400, also known as Nicorros, is a nickel-copper, single phase curing alloy with excellent corrosion resistance in a wide range of environments.
Monel (modifications MONEL 400, 401, 404, K-500, R-405) is a brand of the Special Metals Corporation (USA).
Alloy 400 is characterized by a high degree of resistance to corrosion formation in acidic and alkaline conditions, in sea salt water, in an atmosphere of high humidity. Its feature and great advantage is the possibility of using it in direct contact with fluorine and hydrogen fluoride, hydrofluoric acid. Alloy 400 is known for its resistance to neutral and alkaline salts. Monel 400's composition allows the alloy to withstand direct contact with low concentration acids such as hydrochloric and sulfuric. Chita

Thermal properties N04400
Monel 400, the properties of which make it possible to use an alloy with hydrofluoric acid and fluorine, is actively used in the electrical field, in the production of marine equipment, in the production of containers for the storage and transportation of food products (including salts and alkalis). Elements for medical equipment and devices are made from this alloy. In mechanical engineering, instrument and aircraft construction, Monel 400 is used to produce elements, pumping equipment parts, valves, impeller axles, springs, bushings, etc.
Nicorros 400 has excellent resistance to neutral and alkaline salts and has been the standard material for salt production plants for many years.
Nicorros is one of the few standard materials that can be used in contact with fluorine, hydrofluoric acid and hydrogen fluoride or their compounds.
The material is highly resistant to alkaline media. The behavior in seawater is also excellent, in comparison with copper-based alloys with increased resistance to cavitation. Nicorros® can be used in contact with dilute mineral acids such as sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid if they are in an airless environment. Since the alloy does not contain chromium, corrosion can increase under oxidizing conditions.
While Nickel 400 is considered resistant to stress corrosion cracking, tensile cracks can still appear in the presence of mercury or in wet, ventilated HF-napax. Under these conditions, stress relieving annealing is required.
Nicorros 400 is weldable by all conventional methods: TIG, TIG, plasma, manual arc welding, MAG and SAW and submerged arc welding. For welding, the material must be provided in a light annealed condition and free from scale, grease and markings. Strict cleanliness should be observed during welding.
The following welding consumable is recommended:
For very high corrosive conditions, it is possible to select a welding material from the NiCrMo group of alloys, if necessary, in consultation with the manufacturer.
