Applications of nickel in nickel-based alloys

Technical Characteristics

Nickel is the basis of many heat-resistant materials that are used for power plant parts, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial chemistry, and aerospace. Let's take a look at the practical applications of some nickel alloys. Nichrome is a resistance alloy (40% Cr+60% Ni). Monel (30 - 32% Cu + 65 - 67% Ni + 1% Mn) is very corrosion-resistant and heat-resistant (operating t° 500 °C). Invar (35% Ni + 65% Fe) - practically does not elongate when heated. In addition, nickel alloys include chromium-nickel and nickel steels, as well as nesilber and various resistance alloys such as nickel, manganine and constantan.


Permalloys are used in the manufacture of electromagnet cores. Permalloy (17% Fe + 76% Ni + 2% Cr + 5% Cu) has high magnetic susceptibility with minimal significant hysteresis losses.

Stainless steels

All stainless steels contain nickel in their composition, as it not only increases chemical resistance, but also gives the alloys toughness and strength, which are important in the production of armor, for example. Materials with a low coefficient of thermal expansion (36-38% Ni + Fe) are used in the manufacture of resistance alloys. Coins are minted from nickel alloys. The total number of different nickel alloys that find practical application today reaches several thousand.

Nickel plating application

The use of pure nickel coating protects unalloyed iron alloys from corrosion in chemically active environments. Such coatings are applied by two methods: electroplating and cladding. The cladding layer is created by jointly rolling a thick iron sheet and nickel foil in a hot state. The ratio of the thickness of the coated metal to the nickel layer is approximately 1:10. These sheets are welded together by mutual diffusion, during the rolling process, to produce a two-layer monolithic or sometimes three-layer metal whose surface is protected from corrosion by nickel. This method of creating protective coatings noticeably reduces the cost of products that are made from relatively inexpensive steel or iron. Nickel plated iron sheets are used in the manufacture of storage and transportation tanks, for example, caustic alkalis for the needs of the chemical industry.
