Nickel alloys

Nickel alloys, also called nickel-based alloys, consist, as the name implies, of nickel as the main constituent and at least one other chemical element. They are produced by means of a melting process.

Depending on the admixture of an element, they have various physical properties such as, for example

  • a controlled thermal expansion,
  • special magnetic properties,
  • electrical resistance etc.

In addition, these alloys generally have good corrosion and/or high temperature resistance.

The following nickel alloys are commonly used:

  • low-alloyed (nickel content of up to 99.9%)
  • nickel-chrom
  • nickel-chrome-cobalt
  • nickel-iron
  • nickel-iron-chrome
  • nickel-copper
  • nickel-molybdenum-chrome

Almost all nickel alloys are classified according to international standards.

Applications for nickel materials:

  • in the automotive industry (catalysts and valves)
  • in the chemical industry (chemical reactors, boilers, pumps, valves and heat exchangers)
  • in power generation (power plant generators)
  • in aviation (fasteners, engines and turbines)
  • in oil and gas extraction (drilling tools)
  • Environmental protection and waste management (flue gas desulphurisation plants, waste incineration plants)
  • electronic and household applications (electronic circuits, computer manufacturing, kitchen appliances, cookers)
