200 / 201

Nickel Alloy 200 and 201 are pure nickel alloys with good mechanical and corrosion resistance properties, commonly used for chemical processing and electrical applications.

Nickel Alloy 200 (UNS N02200) and Nickel Alloy 201 (UNS N02201) are pure nickel alloys with excellent mechanical and corrosion resistance properties.

 

These alloys are widely used in a variety of applications, including chemical processing, electrical and electronic components, and food processing equipment.

Nickel Alloy 200 has good mechanical properties and excellent resistance to a range of corrosive environments, including neutral and alkaline salts, organic acids, and chlorine-bearing solutions. It is also highly resistant to corrosion in reducing environments and has low magnetic permeability. This makes it ideal for use in chemical processing, food processing, and electrical applications.

Nickel Alloy 201 offers many of the same properties as Nickel Alloy 200, but with improved resistance to corrosion in high-temperature environments. It is particularly useful for applications where exposure to high-temperature corrosive environments is a concern, such as heat exchangers and high-temperature valves.

Both Nickel Alloy 200 and 201 are easy to form and fabricate, making them popular choices for manufacturing. They are available in a variety of product forms, including plate, sheet, bar, and tube, and can be readily welded and brazed.

In conclusion, Nickel Alloy 200 and 201 are versatile, pure nickel alloys that offer good mechanical and corrosion resistance properties, making them ideal for use in a variety of applications. Their ease of fabrication, resistance to corrosive environments, and high resistance to high-temperature environments make them popular choices for manufacturers and engineers.
