What are nickel alloys and what are they good for? 

Copper Alloys creates custom nickel alloys with the highest strength and hardness to provide cutting-edge solutions for key high-stress industries. 

Where are nickel alloys used? 

Nickel alloys are widely used in components and applications within offshore settings like marine defence, as well as in chemical processing, gas, oil and nuclear production environments. 

The properties of nickel alloys make it widely attractive to be used in these extreme settings. That’s because nickel alloys are flexible elements demonstrating shape memory, low coefficient of expansion and an impeccable resistance to corrosion and high temperatures. 

Properties of nickel-based alloys 

  • Nickel based materials are impressively strong to temperatures over 1000c.
  • Nickel alloys are highly corrosion resistant to seawater and chemical reactions.
  • Nickel based metals can withstand large pressure and weight.  

These properties can make an application or component perform to a much higher standard than the equivalent application with a material without the adequate desired properties.  

Some of Copper Alloys’ nickel alloys include the following...

Global wait times for nickel alloys, applications and components can reach over 12 months, however, Copper Alloys’ solutions can be turned around between three and four months.
