Nickel 200 Bolts with World Wide
Lightning Bolt is the specialist in exotic fasteners and bolting.
Therefore when the task calls for Nickel 200 fasteners, call for
Lightning Bolt. Thisis commercially pure (99.6%) wrought nickel. It
has good mechanical properties and excellent resistance to many
corrosive environments. Other useful features of the alloy are its
magnetic and magnetostrictive properties, high thermal and
electrical conductivities, low gas content and low vapor pressure.
The corrosion resistance of Nickel 200 makes it particularly useful
for maintaining product purity in the handling of foods, synthetic
fibers, and caustic alkalies; and also in structural applications
where resistance to corrosion is a prime consideration.
Other applications include chemical shipping drums, electrical and
electronic parts, aerospace and missile components and rocket motor
Nickel 200 and Nickel 201 are solid solution strengthened,
commercially pure wrought materials with good mechanical properties
over a wide range of temperatures and excellent resistance to many
corrosives, in particular hydroxides. Nickel 201 was a modification
of 200 to control carbon (.02 max) which keeps it from being
embrittled by intergranular precipitates at temperatures of 600° F
to 1400° F in many processes.
Typically, the elemental restrictions of
both, nickel 200 and nickel 201, are combined into one,
dual-certified chemistry resulting in a single alloy with the
desired characteristics of both alloys, Nickel 200/201.
What are the characteristics of Nickel 200/201?
Highly resistant to various reducing
Excellent resistance to caustic alkalis
High electrical conductivity
Excellent corrosion resistance to
distilled and natural waters
Resistance to neutral and alkaline salt
Excellent resistance to dry fluorine
Widely used to handle caustic soda
Good thermal, electrical and
Offers some resistance to hydrochloric
and sulfuric acids at modest temperatures and concentrations
Both Nickel 200 and 201 offer corrosion
resistance in reducing and neutral media as well as in oxidizing
atmospheres provided that the oxidizing media allows the formation
of a passive oxide film. This oxide film accounts for the materials
excellent resistance in caustic environments. Corrosion rates in
both marine and rural atmospheres are very low.
The resistance of Nickel 200/201 to
corrosion by distilled and natural waters is excellent. Plus it also
gives excellent service in flowing sea water even at high velocity,
but in stagnant or very low-velocity sea water severe local attack
may occur under fouling organisms or other deposits.
In hot water systems where the steam
contains carbon dioxide and air in certain proportions, corrosion
rates will be initially high but will decrease with time if
conditions favor the formation of a protective film.
As fastener specialist, we are capable of handling your custom
needs. Regardless if it is a nut, bolt, washer or special stud, call
Lightning Bolt to handle your Nickel 200 requirements.
