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.

Main uses

  • 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.
