Ni 99.6 (low carbon)
*Unified Numbering System (USA)
Characteristics and main uses
Pure nickel LC- Ni 99.6 is characterized by very high resistance to oxidation and chemical corrosion. Ni 99.6 (low carbon) is magnetic up to approx. +350 ° C. The maximum operating temperature in air is +700 ° C.
Due to its low carbon content, LC-Nickel 99.6 exhibits high resistance to corrosion caused by strong solution of sodium or potassium hydroxide, even at high temperatures.
- Good corrosion resistance to acids and alkalis and is particularly useful under reducing conditions.
- Excellent resistance to caustic alkalis up to and including the molten state.
- In acidic, alkaline and neutral salt solutions, the material has good strength, but in oxidizing salt solutions, severe attack will occur.
- Resistant to all dry gases at room temperature also to dry chlorine and also to hydrogen chloride can be used at temperatures up to 550 ° C.
- Resistance to mineral acids varies with temperature and concentration and whether the solution is aerated or not. Corrosion resistance is better in deaerated acid.
- Practically insensitive to inter-granular attack above 315 ° C, chlorates must be reduced to a minimum.
- Manufacture and handling of sodium hydroxide, especially at a temperature above 300 ° C.
- Production of viscose rayon. Soap making.
- Electrical and electronic component
- Electrode contacts and current conductors in batteries
- Current conductors in alkaline fuels
- Production of analin hydrochloride and chlorination of aliphatic hydrocarbons such as benzene, methane and ethane.
- Manufacture of vinyl chloride monomer.
- Reactors and vessels in which fluorine is generated and reacts with hydrocarbons.
