Nickel is a versatile element that will bond with most alloys. Properties of nickel include heat and corrosion resistance, electrical and magnetic capabilities, and low expansion. Because of its versatility and natural properties, nickel is used to make a number of alloys with a range of different commercial uses. 


Monel® is a nickel-copper alloy steel having a ductility of corrosion resistance to a variety of conditions.This alloy has been used most frequently in environments subjected to mild oxidation state in the context of reducing the mild and moderate.An additional application services of the marine environment, and other non-oxidizing materials chloride solution.


Inconel® alloys are oxidation and corrosion resistant materials well suited for service in extreme environments subjected to pressure and heat. When heated, Inconel® forms a thick, stable, passivating oxide layer protecting the surface from further attack. Inconel® retains strength over a wide temperature range, attractive for high temperature applications where aluminum and steel would succumb to creep as a result of thermally induced crystal vacancies.


Incoloy® alloys are mostly nickel-based, and designed for excellent corrosion resistance as well as strength at high temperatures; there are specific alloys for resistance to particular chemical attacks 


The predominant alloying ingredient is typically the transition metal nickel. Other alloying ingredients are added to nickel in each of the subcategories of this trademark designation and include varying percentages of the elements molybdenum, chromium, cobalt,iron, copper, manganese, titanium, zirconium, aluminum, carbon, and tungsten.


Duplex is a stainless steel made from a mixture of austenite and ferrite phases. Like most austenitic stainless steels, duplex has a strong resistance to corrosion, similar to those of a Type 304 and 316.
