Nickel with highest degree of purity with the following features:

  • Very low levels of carbon (20 ppm) and sulfur (2 ppm) which tend to segregate at grain boundries resulting in hot shortening
  • Cleanliness, absence of non-metallic inclusions as Al, Ti or Si oxides
  • Low electrical resistivity at 20°C
  • High thermal conductivity at 20°C
  • Excellent formability
  • Low softening temperature (350°C)
  • Low recrystallization temperature (350°C)
  • Improved oxidation resistance: development of tightly adherent one-layer oxide scale instead of a two-layer costumary one, which tends to flake off due to mismatch in thermal expansion.
  • Equivalent Materials

    This material data has been provided by Hpulcas GmbH.

    "Typical" values were obtained via a literature search. "Predicted" values were imputed via artificial intelligence technology. While we have placed significant efforts in ensuring data accuracy, "typical" and "predicted" data should be considered indicative and verified by appropriate material testing. Please do contact us if additional information on the the predicted data method is required.
    All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
    Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.

    Full Hardened

    Processing history

    For producing wire, the 6 mm hot rolled thick plates are cut into 6 mm wide sticks. The sticks are frontally welded. Afterwards the raw wire can be treated in the same way as hot rolled wire produced by melt metallurgy. accordingly, the wire is drawn to the desired dimensions through cold drawing and intermediate annealing.
