Types of Nickel Alloys :
Nickel will alloy easily with most of the metals like copper , chromium , iron and molybdenum.
By adding the nickel to other metals , it will alter the properties of the resulting alloy and can be used to produce desired charateristics. Desired Characteristics such as improved corrosion or oxidation resistance , increased high-temperature performance, or lower coefficients of thermal expansion, etc.
A range of suitable applications :
It is suitable to use in industries or applications such as Aircraft Gas Turbines , Steam Turbines in Power Plants , Extensive use in the energy and nuclear power markets. Reason being is nickel alloys have high versatility , combined with its outstanding heat and corrosion resistance.
