VDM® Nickel 201 (2.4068/N02201)

VDM® Nickel 201 is an unalloyed nickel with a nickel content of at least 99.2%. 

Characteristics of VDM® Nickel 201

VDM® Nickel 201 is the low carbon version of VDM® Nickel 200.
VDM® Nickel 201 (2.4068/N02201) is characterized by:

  • excellent corrosion resistance in many alkaline media
  • high ductility in a wide temperature range

Applications of VDM® Nickel 201

Unalloyed nickel combines good mechanical properties with good corrosion resistance. In application temperatures above 300°C (572°F), VDM® Nickel 201, which stands out for a low C-concentration, is preferable over VDM® Nickel 200. The lowered C-concentration reduces strength and the work hardening rate, and it raises ductility.

Typical applications are:

  • Food manufacturing such as handling of cooling brine, fatty acids and fruit juices due to the material’s resistance against acids,
  • alkalis and neutral salt solutions and against organic acids
  • Tanks in which fluorine is produced and where it reacts with hydrocarbon (CFC) due to the material’s resistance against fluorine
  • Storage and transport of phenol
  • Production and treatment of caustic soda
  • Production of synthetic fibers and soaps
  • Production of hydrogen chloride and chlorination of hydrocarbons such as benzene, methane and ethane
  • Production of vinyl chloride monomer due to the material’s resistance against dry chlorine gas and hydrogen chloride in increased temperatures
  • Electrical and electronic components
  • Electrode contacts and current conductors in batteries
  • Current conductors in alkali fuels 
  • Electrodes for hydrogen production by electrolysis
