Special Metal Fabrications, acting as specialists in nickel suppliers, can produce nickel based items to the specifications of various customer needs. Nickel, a hardened silver transition metal, is known as a chemical element with the atomic symbol of ‘NI’ and the atomic number of 28. It’s strength, resistance to corrosion at extreme temperatures (cold or hot) and magnetic/electronic characteristics make it perfect for appliances we use in our day-to-day routines, right down to your everyday coinage. It is most commonly used in the production of various steels and metallic alloys.
Nickel uses apply to the manufacturing of a range of different products. A high percentage of nickel is used in stainless steel products such as kitchen utensils. You will find nickel uses in the parts of electronic-based devices such as mobile phones and power tools. This is due to nickel’s useful property of being applicable to items that require the use of rechargeable batteries. The components used for this are nickel-metal hydrate and nickel-cadmium. The alloy of nichrome is used in the manufacturing heating-based items like ovens and toasters due to the alloy’s resistance to corrosion even at extreme heats.
Nickel properties allow it alloy with other metals such as aluminium, lead, gold and iron to name a few. Nickel alloys are manufactured to enable the creation of cast irons, monel, incoloy and stainless steel as previously mentioned, which is the most common creation of nickel alloy creations. Nickel alloys are also used predominantly in the engineering industry.
