VDM® Nickel 201 is available with a Nickel content of 99.2 (2.4068) or 99.6 (2.4061) weight-%. The carbon content is max. 0.02 weight-%. Thereby, the material shows better corrosion resistance at elevated temperatures above 300 °C (570 °F) by avoiding graphite precipitation.
VDM® Nickel 201 (2.4061/2.4068/N02201) is characterized by:
Their most significant property is extremely high resistance to caustic alkalies up to and including the molten state. The extra-low carbon content of VDM® Nickel 201 gives virtual immunity to intergranular attack above about 315 °C ( 600 °F). The presence of chlorates must be kept to a minimum, as they accelerate the rate of attack.
The material can be used in dry chlorine and hydrogen chloride – at temperatures up to 550 °C (1020 °F).
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:
