This metal offers combination of corrosion resistance, formability and tough physical properties. For these reasons, nickel is used for alloying purposes and in nickel-clad copper wire.
An element, Ni, used in alloys and electroplating.
Widely used as an alloying element in steels. Up to 5.0% can be present in general engineering and in case-hardening steels. Improves strength and toughness and increases hardenability. Larger amounts are present in austenitic stainless and in heat resisting steels. Also used in Invar, a controlled thermal expansion alloy, and in permanent magnet alloys.
An alloying element used as a raw material for certain classes of stainless steel. Nickel provides high degrees of ductility (ability to change shape without fracture) as well as resistance to corrosion. Approximately 65% of all nickel is used in the making of stainless steel.
Nickel (Ni) is a silvery white metal that takes on a high polish. It is hard, malleable, ductile, somewhat ferromagnetic, and a fair conductor of heat and electricity. Nickel provides high degrees of ductility (ability to change shape without fracture) as well as resistance to corrosion. Approximately 65% of all nickel is used in the making of stainless steel. Nickel alloys are used for the more extreme conditions where general corrosion, pitting or SCC cause failure of the traditional stainless steels.

Metal used in the barrel of the dart, not as dense as tungsten but more dense than brass
Ni2AsS, a native arsenic sulfide
A metallic element used in some steels. A silvery-white metal of medium hardness, highly ductile and resistant to chemical and atmospheric corrosion. Widely used as an alloying agent in iron and copper base alloys. As an alloying element in steel, it imparts a finer and more homogeneous structure. The most suitable composition for cold working is said to be 0.2 to 0.5 percent carbon and 2 to 3.5 percent nickel. Also used for plating and coating (see nickel coating). Nickel increases hardenability, thus permitting steel to be oil-hardened instead of water-quenched. In larger quantities, 8.00 percent and upwards, nickel is the constituent, together with chromium, of many corrosion resistant and stainless austenitic steels.

A silvery-white metal which is used in steel alloys to make them strong and resistant to corrosion.
Shiny white metal that is never pure in its natural state as it is always associated with iron. Its principal ore is pentlandite.
A base metal found in many types of costume and inexpensive jewelry that can cause allergic reactions. Any jewelry containing nickel should be avoided when getting pierced.
Occurs naturally in soils, groundwater and surface waters and is often used in electroplating, stainless steel, and alloy products. It generally gets into water from mining and refining operations. Measured in µg/L or ppb. The MCL for nickel is 0.1 mg/L or ppm. The Health Advisory Level is 200 µg/L or ppb.
Nickel is used in low alloy steels to reduce the sensitivity of the steel to variations in heat treatment and distortion and cracking on quenching. It also improves low temperature toughness and hardenability.
A metal with the symbol Ni. Widely used to construct various metal alloys. The use of Nickel in batteries is being reduced now.
silver tarnish-resistant nonprecious alloy resembling silver; same as German silver
An elemental metal of important use in the jewelry trade. Pure nickel is white, hard, ductile and malleable. The principal use of nickel, when alloyed with gold, makes the latter harder, more ductile and paler; it replaces silver in white gold; it acts as a grain refiner, producing smooth surfaces after annealing or casting.
a hard malleable ductile silvery metallic element that is resistant to corrosion; used in alloys; occurs in pentlandite and smaltite and garnierite and millerite
is usually the layer between copper and the precious metal finish. Nickel protects metallic objects from corrosion and promotes excellent leveling. A bright nickel give high brightness to the final finish, and a Watts nickel produces a dull matte finish.
Versatile metal used in various applications including coins, batteries and wire. Carcinogenic (cancer-causing) in dust form and toxic in gaseous form.
A silvery white metal used to strengthen steel and to prevent corrosion.
MCL has not been established, but for freshwater the concentration should be less than 0.1 mg/L. Element detected using flame atomic absorption, no specific standard for nickel. Nickel may cause dermatitis and nasal irritation.
A hard silvery coloured metal often used as an alloy with copper known as cupro-nickel. Also the name of a US five cent coin which actually contains about 24% nickel.
Hard, malleable, and resistant to corrosion, this white metal is malleable and often mixed with precious metals such as gold and silver.
A chemical element with atomic number 28. Nickel was discovered in 1751 by Axel Fredrik Cronstedt in the mineral niccolite. The name nickel is derived from the German for Satan. Symbol: Ni. Related to transition metals.
A metallic element which forms a solid solution with iron when added to steel. It does not form carbides, but assists in hardening to improve tensile properties and resistance to embrittlement at low temperatures. Nickel in excess of 7% is responsible for making the 300 series stainless steels austenitic.
Metallic element used mainly in alloys. Many eyeglass frames are made of nickel alloy, so people who are allergic should choose a hypoallergenic substitute, such as titanium.

An alloying element used in stainless steels to enhance ductility and corrosion resistance.
One of the most widely used alloying elements in steel. In amounts 0.50% to 5.00% its use in alloy steels increases the toughness and tensile strength without detrimental effect on the ductility.
