A&A Coatings material is used where it is necessary to provide load bearing, corrosion resistant surfaces, particularly in seawater and caustic environments. Monel produces dense coatings which are easily machinable.
Due to its corrosion-resistance characteristics, Monel provides protection for machine elements where the hardness is sufficient for steam valve components, shafts (propeller, tail, crank, etc.), pump plungers, seal rings, hydraulic pumps, etc. This material is especially ideal where immersion in sea water would present difficulties for the softer metals. Highly suitable, as well, for bores and low shrink applications.
