Nickel 200 is a ferromagnetic, commercially pure (99.6%) wrought Nickel with good mechanical properties over a wide range of temperatures, high ductility, and excellent resistance to many corrosives (in particular hydroxides). Ni 200 is used for a variety of processing equipment, particularly to maintain product purity in handling foods, synthetic fibers and alkalies.
- Curie temperature: 360°C (680°F)
- Excellent corrosion resistance (especially against hydroxides)
- High ductility
- Ideal for use in sonic devices such as sonar or for control in ultrasonic welding
Nickel 200 has roughly the strength of mild steel when annealed. Its low annealed hardness and very low work-hardening rate makes it desirable for cold forming operations such as deep drawing, spinning, coining, etc. Used in corrosion-resistant equipment such as caustic evaporators, spun anodes, combustion boats and laboratory crucibles, and electronic components where its excellent fabricating characteristics provide an advantage.
Nickel 200 exhibits good thermal and electrical properties. Its magnetostrictive properties (specifically significant length change when magnetized) make it ideal for use in sonic devices such as sonar or for control in ultrasonic welding.
