Nickel has good plasticity, corrosion resistance and magnetic properties, so it is mainly used in steel, nickel-based alloys, electroplating and batteries,which is also widely used in aircraft, radar and other military manufacturing, civil machinery manufacturing and electroplating industry.
Nickel consumption is the largest in stainless steel applications. Two-thirds of the primary its ores in the world are used in stainless steel production. Stainless steel containing nickel can not only resist the corrosion of atmosphere, steam and water, but also acid, alkali and salt. Therefore, it is widely used in chemical, metallurgical and construction industries, such as the manufacture of containers, towers, tanks and pipes required for welding in petrochemical, textile, light industry and nuclear energy industries. Corrosion-resistant high-pressure equipment such as tower, scrubbing tower, condensation tower and stripper. According to the different proportion of nickel, nickel-containing stainless steel can be divided into austenitic stainless steel, austenitic-ferritic duplex stainless steel and precipitation hardening stainless steel.
Alloy steel is also called special steel. Nickel can improve the strength of the alloy and maintain its good plasticity and toughness because of different composition and types. Nickel-containing alloy steel is mainly used in manufacturing of acid-resistant towers, medical devices, daily necessities, as well as in the transformation of bridges, repair of warships and other mechanical manufacturing, transportation and military industries.
Nickel based alloy field
Nickel-based alloys are a kind of alloys with high strength and certain anti-oxidation and corrosion resistance at 650-1000 ~C. According to the main properties, it can be divided into nickel-based heat-resistant alloy, nickel-based corrosion-resistant alloy, and shape memory alloy. Nickel-based alloy products mainly includes: electric furnace, electric iron, turbine disk of turbine engine, combustion chamber, turbine blade, color television, communication equipment, pendulum in clock and measuring tape, furniture manufacturing, fine tools with permanent magnet performance, automatic opening structural parts used in spacecraft, self-use in aerospace industry. Incentive fasteners and artificial heart motors for biomedical use. It is widely used in aviation, shipping, chemical industry, electronics, medicine and energy industries.
