Alloy 60 is used for the welding of Monel ® alloys 400, R-405 and K-500. This filler metal is also used for surfacing of steel. The weld metal deposited by Alloy 60 has properties similar to those of Montel ® alloy 400. This filler metal has good strength and resists corrosion in many media, including seawater, salts, and reducing acids. The weld metal of Alloy 60 is not age hardenable and when used to join Monel ® alloy K-500 it has lower strength than the base metal.
