Wide Range of Nickel Sheet/Plate Thicknesses!
We offer several Nickel Sheet/Plate sizes and alloys that maintain their properties in highly corrosive processing environments at cryogenic & elevated temperatures.
Shop by Material, Shape and Alloys
Nickel, a resilient transition metal with a silvery-white appearance, excels in high strength, outstanding corrosion resistance, heat resistance, and fatigue strength at elevated temperatures, making it pivotal in aerospace, chemical processing, marine components and manufacturing.
We carry a wide variety of Nickel alloys, including: 200, 400, 625 & c276.
Fatigue Strength at High Temperatures
No, nickel is not considered a precious metal like gold or platinum. It is categorized as a base metal due to its widespread industrial use and relatively lower value compared to precious metals.
While nickel is known for its corrosion resistance and biocompatibility, its use in medical implants can vary. Some people may have allergies to nickel, and in those cases, alternative materials are preferred. However, certain nickel-containing alloys, like stainless steel, can be used for specific medical implants when compatibility is ensured.
Nickel's robust resistance to corrosion is primarily attributed to its ability to form a protective oxide layer, making it an ideal choice in applications involving high temperatures, aggressive chemicals, and extreme environments. It excels in scenarios where stainless steel may fall short, such as high-temperature settings where nickel-based alloys like Inconel outperform stainless steel grades. Additionally, in corrosive environments, particularly those featuring hydrochloric acid or specialized chemical processing, nickel's superior corrosion resistance is preferred. Its use extends to aerospace, defense, marine, and chemical industries, highlighting its critical role in demanding applications where protection against corrosion is paramount.
Nickel is not commonly used in direct food preparation or cookware due to the potential for allergic reactions and leaching concerns. However, it can be found as a component in stainless steel cookware, where it is typically alloyed with other elements to ensure its safety for cooking purposes.
