List of Alloys & profiles


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.

Nickel® 200

Nickel® 200 is commercially pure and has good mechanical properties and excellent corrosion resistance to alkalis i.e. Sodium hydroxide. It also has good electrical, thermal and magneto-strictive properties. The corrosion resistance of Nickel® 200 means it is suited to products in food handling, synthetic fibres, and caustic alkalis. Other applications include aerospace components, electrical and electronic parts, and chemical shipping drums. Nickel® 200 is also known as Phyweld 200.
