Nickel® 270

A high purity grade of Nickel that is made by powder metallurgy, Nickel® 270 contains 99.95% Nickel in addition to traces of minor elements including Iron, Carbon and Copper. It has a low base hardness and high ductility, with its purity levels making it ideal for applications such as hydrogen thyratrons and electrical resistance thermometers. Nickel® 270 is also known as HPM 270 Nickel.

Nickel® 212

Nickel® 212 is Nickel strengthened with an addition of Manganese. A good thermal conductor with high corrosion resistance, Nickel® 212 is used for electrical and electronic applications such as lead wires, as well as components such as electrodes in lamps.

Nickel® 205

Nickel® 205 is similar to Nickel® 200, but has compositional adjustments to enhance its performance in electrical and electronic applications. Nickel® 205 exhibits exceptional mechanical, electrical and corrosion-resistant properties, as well as good oxidation resistance. Nickel® 205 is also known as VDM Nickel 99.6.

Nickel® 201

A commercially pure Nickel (typically 99.6% Nickel), Nickel 201 is essentially the same as Nickel 200, but with a lower carbon content to prevent embrittlement by inter granular carbon at temperatures over 315°C (600°F). Lower carbon content also reduces hardness, which makes it ideally suited for spinning and cold forming. It is also preferred to Nickel 200 for applications involving exposure to temperatures above 315°C (600°F). Nickel® 201 is also known as Phyweld 201.

Nilo® 52

Nilo® 52 was designed for use with a variety of soft glasses. It is known for its almost constant coefficient of thermal expansion up to approx. 565°C (1050°F). Nilo® 52’s low thermal expansion properties make it suitable for electronic applications, notably within the telecommunications industry. Nilo® 52 is also known as Invar 52, Pernifer 50, and Glass Sealing 52

Nilo® 48

A Nickel-Iron, controlled expansion alloy containing 48% Nickel. Its coefficient of thermal expansion was designed to match that of soft lead and soda-lime glasses. This alloy also has a high inflection point. Nilo® 48 is often used in industrial thermostat rods up to 450°C (840°F) and for glass-to-metal seals in a number of applications, which may include radio valves and electric lamps. Nilo® 48 is also known as Invar 48 and Magnifer 50.

Nilo® 42

A Nickel-Iron, low expansion alloy containing 42% Nickel. It has a low and nominally constant coefficient of thermal expansion from room temperature to about 300°C (570°F). Nilo® 42 is also known as Invar 42, Pernifer 40, Dilaton 42, and Glass Sealing 42.

Nilo® 36

A Nickel-Iron, low expansion alloy containing 36% Nickel. It maintains near constant dimensions over the range of normal atmospheric temperatures and has a low coefficient of expansion from cryogenic temperatures to about 500°C (930°F). Nilo 36 also retains good strength and toughness at cryogenic temperatures. This makes it useful for applications such as cryogenic engineering and laser components. Nilo® 36 is also known as Invar / Invar 36, Supra 36, and Pernifer 36.

Monel® K-500

This Nickel-Copper alloy is precipitation hardenable, due to the additions of Aluminium and Titanium. It combines the corrosion resistance of Monel 400 but gives the added advantage of extra strength and hardness (as a result of its age hardening ability). Monel® K-500 provides corrosion resistance in several marine and chemical applications. Monel® K-500 is also known as Nicorros Al.

Beryllium Copper CB 101

This age hardenable copper alloy combines a range of properties suited to meet the exacting requirements of many automotive, electronic and aerospace industries .A good conductor of electricity, Beryllium Copper CB 101 is used in the manufacture of different types of springs. Beryllium Copper CB 101 is also known as Cupro Beryllium, Beryllium Copper Alloy 25, Berylco 25, NGK 25, and Ampcoloy 83.

Ni-Span-C Alloy 902®

A precipitation hardenable Nickel-Iron-Chromium alloy having outstanding controllable thermoelastic coefficient characteristics and excellent oxidation resistance in high temperature atmospheres. The alloy can be processed to have a constant modulus of elasticity at temperatures ranging from -45 to +65°C (-50 to +150°F).

Waspaloy

This age hardenable nickel base super alloy has very good strength in temperatures up to about 980°C (1800°F). It’s strength is generally comparable to that of Rene 41 and is generally superior to that of Alloy 718 at temperatures exceeding 650 – 705°C (1200 – 1300°F).
