Nickel Alloys

nickel-alloys

Nickel has a great ability to alloy with a wide range of other elements to produce alloys with very useful properties. Not only do these alloys exhibit excellent electrical resistance properties, but many also exhibit exceptional strength and resistance to oxidation and chemical corrosion at extreme temperatures.

In addition to the Nickel Alloys, Nickel is also available as a commercially pure material.

Nickel 200

nickel-200

Nickel 200 or Commercially Pure Nickel has a nickel content of 99.5%. It has good mechanical properties and resistance to a wide range of corrosive environments. It is used for chemical and processing plant, particularly for maintaining product purity in the handling of foods, synthetic fibres and caustic alkalis.

Nickel 212

nickel-212A Nickel grade with the addition of 2% Manganese. Applications include electrode support wire, and in cold tail connectors for heating cables and mats.

Alloy 400

alloy-400Alloy 400 or Monel 400 is a Nickel-Copper alloy well known as a corrosion resistive material by sulphuric, sea-water, hydrochloric and phosphoric acids. For temperatures up to 450 °C it maintains its strength and corrosion resistance in service. Typical applications include pickling plant and chemical processing equipment.

Alloy K500

alloy-k500Alloy K500 or Monel K500 is an age-hardening alloy combining the corrosion resistance typical of Alloy 400 with increased strength and hardness. It retains its strength up to 650 °C and is strong and ductile at temperatures as low as -250 °C. This alloy has low magnetic permeability and is non-magnetic down to -130 °C.

Alloy 600

alloy-600Alloy 600 or Inconel 600 is a Nickel Chromium alloy with the addition of Iron. This alloy is used for engineering applications due to its good strength and resistance to corrosion at high temperatures. It is used for furnace and heat treatment equipment as well as heating element sheathing.

Alloy 90

alloy-90Alloy 90 or Nimonic 90 is a Nickel Chromium alloy with the addition of Cobalt. The alloy is precipitation hardenable, and has high strength and corrosion resistance at very high temperatures (up to 950 °C)
