Nickel Sheet

A reliable source for Nickel Sheet information and leading Nickel Sheet Companies & Suppliers.

A nickel sheet is a thin, flat metal shape with uniform thickness. Nickel sheets are made from bullets or ingots of pure nickel. They are also made from nickel alloys. Nickel sheets are thicker than foil while thinner than nickel plates, varying between 0.006 inches and 0.250 inches. Read More…

Nickel Sheet Nickel sheet is a flat, often thin sheet constructed of the metal nickel or nickel alloys. Nickel sheets are among the number of items that can be formed from nickel. Besides being able to withstand extreme temperatures, nickel alloys can be welded, machined and hot and cold worked.

What is a Nickel Sheet?

Nickel sheets are ideal stock forms because they have standardized measurements. This allows manufacturers to plan for efficient storage, transport, and secondary processing. Nickle is are ductile, malleable, and the sheets are very thin. This means it is easy to fabricate nickel sheets into specific shapes while maintaining the integrity of the material.

Nickel material is incredibly useful in sheet form, because it’s features include ferromagnetism, hardness, corrosion resistance, and electrical and heat conductivity. When buying nickel sheets, it is crucial to consider the specific alloy being usedbecause chemical, physical, and machining properties may vary.

The Process of Nickel Sheet Forming

Before being made into sheets, nickel material is mined from the earth. Nickel is mined through hydrometallurgy or pyrometallurgical extraction. The nickel ore extracted is then refined through roasting and reduction processes until reaching the desired purity. Commercial grade nickel sheets contain 99.6% nickel. Some nickel alloys contain as little as 32.5% nickel.

Then the nickel (or the alloy) is formed into billets, ingots, bars, or other shapes that will formed into sheets. There are numerous processes used to produce nickel sheets. These include casting, extrusion, cold rolling, hot rolling, and drawing. The most common technique is hot or cold roll forming. In roll forming, the stock nickel is fed through a pair of rollers that compress the nickel metal into a thin sheet. The compressed nickel material may be heated or left at room temperature.

To achieve an accurate and consistent thickness, it may be necessary to use several rollers or many runs over the same rollers. To determine when this is necessary, Manufacturers should consider the nickel sheet’s intended purpose. Carefully evaluate the nickel sheet's thickness, gauge, length, breadth, and possible consequences of a secondary run.

After defining a purpose for your nickel sheet, the thin planes may undergo an assortment of operations. These include folding, punching, stamping, slitting, cutting, metal spinning, and other fabrication techniques that will produce a finished product.

Types of Nickel Sheets

The different types of nickel sheets include:

Hastelloy C-22 Sheets

Hastelloy C-22 sheets are made from a versatile nickel chromium molybdenum tungsten alloy. They are resistant to various industrial chemicals and easy to weld.

nickel extraction from laterite ores

Hastelloy G-30 Sheets

Hastelloy G-30 sheets are made from a high chromium-nickel base alloy. They are also resistant to highly oxidizing acids and phosphoric acids.

Hastelloy B-3 Sheets

Hastelloy B-3 nickel sheets are used in chemical industry because they are resistant to sulphuric acid, hydrochloric acid, and phosphoric acid.

Hastelloy C-276 Sheets

Nickel sheets made from Hastelloy C-276 are also used in the chemical industry because they resist oxidizing agents and are easily fabricated.

Hastelloy X Sheets

Hastelloy X nickel sheets are used to make jet engine components for blades, tailpipes, afterburner sections, ducting, bellows, and honeycomb seals. They are strong and oxidation resistant up to 2200°F.

Haynes 242 Sheets

Haynes 242 nickel sheets are made from a nickel alloy that is perceptible to the age hardening process. Haynes 242 nickel sheets are oxidation resistant, have low thermal expansion, and ductile. Haynes 242 sheets are used in gas turbine engines and chemical processing plants.

Applications and uses of Nickel Sheets

  • Nickel sheets are utilized in electronic wiring, sparking electrodes, and heat exchangers.
  • Nickel sheets are used in battery components.
  • In the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries, nickel sheets are used as an engineering material.

Benefits of Nickel Sheets

  • Nickel sheets are corrosion resistant, versatile, and durable.
  • Nickel sheets are flexible enough to be fabricated or welded into almost any shape.
  • Nickel sheets are resistant to dry fluorine and other corrosive chemicals
