Nilo® K - Alloy Wire International 1

Nilo® K

A Nickel-Iron-Cobalt, controlled expansion alloy containing nominally 29% Nickel and 17% Cobalt. Its coefficient of expansion (which decreases with rising temperature to the inflection point), matches the expansion rate of borosilicate glasses and alumina ceramics. Nilo® K is also known as Kovar, Dilver, and Pernifer 2918.

Nilo® 52 - Alloy Wire International 2

Nilo® 52

Nilo® 52 was designed for use with a variety of soft glasses. It is known for its almost constant coefficient of thermal expansion up to approx. 565°C (1050°F). Nilo® 52’s low thermal expansion properties make it suitable for electronic applications, notably within the telecommunications industry. Nilo® 52 is also known as Invar 52, Pernifer 50, and Glass Sealing 52

Nilo® 48 - Alloy Wire International 3

Nilo® 48

A Nickel-Iron, controlled expansion alloy containing 48% Nickel. Its coefficient of thermal expansion was designed to match that of soft lead and soda-lime glasses. This alloy also has a high inflection point. Nilo® 48 is often used in industrial thermostat rods up to 450°C (840°F) and for glass-to-metal seals in a number of applications, which may include radio valves and electric lamps. Nilo® 48 is also known as Invar 48 and Magnifer 50.

Nilo® 42 - Alloy Wire International 4

Nilo® 42

A Nickel-Iron, low expansion alloy containing 42% Nickel. It has a low and nominally constant coefficient of thermal expansion from room temperature to about 300°C (570°F). Nilo® 42 is also known as Invar 42, Pernifer 40, Dilaton 42, and Glass Sealing 42.

Nilo® 36 - Alloy Wire International 5

Nilo® 36

A Nickel-Iron, low expansion alloy containing 36% Nickel. It maintains near constant dimensions over the range of normal atmospheric temperatures and has a low coefficient of expansion from cryogenic temperatures to about 500°C (930°F). Nilo 36 also retains good strength and toughness at cryogenic temperatures. This makes it useful for applications such as cryogenic engineering and laser components. Nilo® 36 is also known as Invar / Invar 36, Supra 36, and Pernifer 36.

Monel® K-500 - Alloy Wire International 6

Monel® K-500

This Nickel-Copper alloy is precipitation hardenable, due to the additions of Aluminium and Titanium. It combines the corrosion resistance of Monel 400 but gives the added advantage of extra strength and hardness (as a result of its age hardening ability). Monel® K-500 provides corrosion resistance in several marine and chemical applications. Monel® K-500 is also known as Nicorros Al.

Monel® 400 - Alloy Wire International 7

Monel® 400

A Nickel-Copper alloy with high strength and excellent corrosion resistance in a range of acidic and alkaline environments and suitable for reducing conditions. It also has good ductility and thermal conductivity. Used in a variety of applications, Monel® 400 has excellent resistance to seawater, and can also be used in hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids. Monel® 400 is also known as Phyweld 400 and Nicorros LC.

Beryllium Copper CB 101 - Alloy Wire International 8

Beryllium Copper CB 101

This age hardenable copper alloy combines a range of properties suited to meet the exacting requirements of many automotive, electronic and aerospace industries .A good conductor of electricity, Beryllium Copper CB 101 is used in the manufacture of different types of springs. Beryllium Copper CB 101 is also known as Cupro Beryllium, Beryllium Copper Alloy 25, Berylco 25, NGK 25, and Ampcoloy 83.

Ni-Span-C Alloy 902® - Alloy Wire International 9

Ni-Span-C Alloy 902®

A precipitation hardenable Nickel-Iron-Chromium alloy having outstanding controllable thermoelastic coefficient characteristics and excellent oxidation resistance in high temperature atmospheres. The alloy can be processed to have a constant modulus of elasticity at temperatures ranging from -45 to +65°C (-50 to +150°F).

Waspaloy - Alloy Wire International 10


This age hardenable nickel base super alloy has very good strength in temperatures up to about 980°C (1800°F). It’s strength is generally comparable to that of Rene 41 and is generally superior to that of Alloy 718 at temperatures exceeding 650 – 705°C (1200 – 1300°F).

Rene 41 - Alloy Wire International 11

Rene 41

Rene 41 is an age hardenable nickel base alloy that has very high strength at elevated temperatures, particularly within the range of 650 - 980 °C (1200 - 1800 °F). Required mechanical properties can be tailored by selection of various combinations of cold work and/or heat treatments. Rene 41 also has good oxidation resistance.

MP35N - Alloy Wire International 12


MP35N is an age hardenable Nickel-Cobalt base alloy that has a unique combination of properties – ultra high strength, toughness, ductility and outstanding corrosion resistance. MP35N resists corrosion in hydrogen sulphide, salt water and other chloride solutions. It also has excellent resistance to crevice and stress corrosion cracking in sea water and other hostile environments. The four alloy elements in MP35N are the basis for corrosion resistance in almost every Stainless Steel, Nickel and Cobalt-based alloy commonly used in the industry. The alloy resists corrosion in hydrogen sulphide, salt water and other Chloride solutions, as well as the mineral acids (Nitric, Hydrochloric and Sulphuric). MP35N is suitable where a high combination of strength, high modulus values and good corrosion resistance are required. Applications for this alloy also include medical devices and dental products.
