This nickel is commercially pure (99.6%). It has high mechanical qualities and is resistant to a wide range of corrosive conditions. Annealed nickel 200 Alloy is easy to work with because of its low hardness, ductility, and weldability. Although the metal has a slow work-hardening rate, it may be cold treated to a reasonably high strength level while still remaining ductile.
Nickel 200 Alloys have a ferromagnetic property. In comparison to nickel-base alloys, stainless and low alloy steels, it has a high thermal and electrical conductivity. Nickel Alloys 200 Plates have a tensile strength of 462 MPa, yield strength of 148 MPa, and a 45 percent elongation at break.
Corrosion Resistance – It is best kept inside, where it will remain bright at all times, and outside when sulfide will slowly degrade. It can, however, survive sulfuric acids at low to mid temperatures, as well as hydrochloric acids up to a 30% concentration. More than that, the metal will begin to corrode rapidly.
Physical Properties: Without a doubt, nickel is one of the toughest metals on the planet. It has excellent torsion and shear strength at room temperature, and it has a high Rockwell rating, especially when compared to steel. It gets much weaker at high temperatures, though. It can only maintain its strength up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit.
Properties of Nickel 200 Alloy
Nickel 200 Alloy is consists of a few chemical compositions such as Nickel 99 Iron, 0.40, Manganese 0.35, Silicon 0.35, Copper 0.25, Carbon 0.15, and Sulfur 0.010.
Nickel 200 Alloy has a density of 8.89 g/cm3 With a Melting Point of 1435-1446°C.
Features of Nickel 200 Alloy
Nonferrous metals with great strength and toughness, outstanding corrosion resistance, and superior raised temperature qualities are found in Nickel 200 Alloy. Pure nickel is a hard, malleable, and ductile metallic element that belongs to the iron group. For applications involving temperatures above 600oF (315oC), it is a better choice than nickel 200 Alloy.
Application of Nickel 200 Alloys
Nickel 200 Alloys are used in electronic and electroplating components, caustic evaporators, food processing equipment, caustic handling and storage equipment, synthetic fiber manufacturing, salt production, and other sodium hydroxide and fluorine-based operations.
