Properties

The typical mechanical properties of Nickel® 212:

ConditionApprox. tensile strengthApprox. operating temperature
Annealed<500 N/mm² (<73 ksi)Tensile strength and elongation drop significantly at temperatures above 315 °C (600 °F). Service temperature is dependent on environment, load and size range.
Hard Drawn
750 – 950 N/mm² (102 – 131 ksi)Tensile strength and elongation drop significantly at temperatures above 315 °C (600 °F). Service temperature is dependent on environment, load and size range.

The above tensile strength ranges are typical. If you require different please ask.
