VDM® Nickel 200 (2.4060/2.4066/N02200)

VDM® Nickel 200 is an unalloyed wrought nickel. It offers excellent corrosion resistance, good mechanical, magnetic and magnetostrictive properties and useful thermal and electrical conductivities. The material is available with varying Nickel content (99.2 or 99.6 weight-%).

Characteristics of VDM® Nickel 200

VDM® Nickel 200 (2.4060/2.4066/N02200) is characterized by:

  • excellent corrosion resistance in many alkaline media
  • good mechanical properties within a wide range of temperatures
  • magnetization decreasing continuously between -273 and 360 °C (-458 and 680 °F) and showing paramagnetism above the Curie Point

VDM® Nickel 200 has excellent resistance to many corrosive media from acid to alkaline. It is most useful under reducing conditions but, where a passive oxide is formed, they may also be used in oxidizing conditions.

Applications of VDM® Nickel 200

Unalloyed wrought nickel combines excellent mechanical properties with good corrosion resistance. Above 300 °C (570 °F) working temperature, the low-carbon version is generally used. The limited carbon content lowers mechanical property values and work-hardening rate but promotes ductility.

Typical applications are:

  • food production, such as handling of cooling brines, fatty acids and fruit juices - resistance to acid, alkaline and neutral salt solutions and to organic acids
  • vessels in which fluorine is generated and reacted with hydrocarbons - resistance to fluorine
  • storing and transportation of phenol - immunity from any form of attack ensures absolute product purity
  • manufacture and handling of sodium hydroxide, particularly at temperatures above 300 °C (570 °F)
  • production of viscose rayon and manufacture of soap-general corrosion resistance and virtual immunity to intergranular attack above 315 °C (600 °F)
  • production of hydrochloric acid and chlorination of hydrocarbons such as benzene, methane and ethane-resistance at elevated temperatures to dry chlorine and hydrogen chloride
  • manufacture of vinyl chloride monomer - resistance to hydrogen chloride at elevated temperatures
