Ni-Cu 405 (UNS N04405)
Alloy 405 is a ductile nickel-copper alloy with resistance to a variety of corrosive conditions. The alloy is most frequently applied in a range of environments ranging from mildly oxidizing through neutral and to moderately reducing conditions. An additional application area of the material is in marine environments and other non-oxidizing chloride solutions.
Alloy 405 is the free-machining grade of alloy 400. Its greater sulfur content enhances machinability. It has essentially the same corrosion resistance and physical properties as alloy 400, but a slightly different range of mechanical properties. Alloy 405 is used chiefly for automatic- screw-machine stock and is not generally recommended for other applications. Due to the sulfur addition for free machining, welding is not possible for Alloy 405.
