Workability

Because the work hardenability of Pure Nickel is low, it is suitable for severe cold working by methods such as spinning and coining.

Weldability

Possible welding methods include shielded metal arc welding, TIG, MIG, and resistance welding. ENi-1 welding consumable should be used for TIG and MIG welding.

Heat Treatment

Heat treatment of NAS Ni201 is normally performed at the temperature range from 760 to 1050℃ followed by being quenched in water or rapidly cooled by other means.

Pickling

It should be noted that descaling of NAS Ni201 is somewhat difficult in comparison with Type 304.

Applications

Materials for caustic soda manufacturing equipment, cell phone terminals, various types of battery parts, automotive electrical/electronic device parts
