Copper-nickel alloy is a fairly popular type of raw material, which is widely used in modern industry and production. The main element of such an alloy is Cu (copper), the main alloying component is nickel.
Depending on the variety and purpose, the copper-nickel alloy may also include, in varying concentrations, such chemical elements as:
aluminum and so on.
Quality nickel-copper alloy comes in two main categories:
As for the scope of application, alloys of this type are necessary for various fields and industries. They are used to make critical components of various chemical equipment, as well as thermocouples and all kinds of heating devices.
In addition, copper-nickel alloys are necessary for the production of household items (food spoons, dishes, bowls). A variety of measuring instruments, as well as rheostats, for example, incorporate the most important parts from such alloys.
You can also note the use in the electrical industry, in the jewelry industry, in the manufacture of coins and medals, various decorative elements. Precise chronometers, control devices, springs for various purposes – copper-nickel alloys are simply necessary for their production.
For copper-nickel alloy, the price largely depends on the brand of raw materials used for the production. The main varieties are alloys MNMts40-1.5 (copper, nickel, manganese), MNZhMts 30-1-1 (copper, nickel, iron, manganese) or M1.
The first type of alloy is especially appreciated in the electrical industry – compensating wires are made from it. Alloy M1 belongs to the universal group and is used for the production of conductors of various types, as well as standard rolled metal and cryogenic equipment.
Alloys of the MNZhMts 30-1-1 type are characterized by erosion and corrosion resistance. They are used in instrument making, as well as for the manufacture of condenser tubes and tube sheets in climatic equipment.
The main types of finished copper-nickel rolled products are:
wire with a cross section from 0.05 to 3 mm;
The cost of a copper-nickel alloy is determined by its variety, as well as the size of the rolled product. Dimensions can be adjusted at the request of customers, it is possible to fulfill individual requests for production according to your sketches and drawings.
Copper-nickel alloy, the price of which in Ukraine in our company is more than affordable, can be represented as:
Kopels and so on.
Properties of Finished Alloys
The price of a copper-nickel alloy is determined by the quantity and concentration of its constituent components. As noted above, the main alloying element is nickel. When it is introduced into copper, the mechanical parameters of the new material are improved:
Flexibility and plasticity;
Resistant to tearing and bending.
Two-component alloys are distinguished by corrosion resistance even under the influence of aggressive environments (sea water and so on). If aluminum and magnesium additives are also present in the composition, in addition to nickel, the alloy will have increased strength.
When manganese is added, the weldability of individual parts of the alloy can be improved. The high hardness of the material allows the use of alloys for the manufacture of elements with the smallest details – this is in demand in the production of jewelry and coins.
Advantages of copper-nickel alloys
Such materials are distinguished by high-quality operational parameters, the main advantages include:
high electrical resistance;
The ability to resist maximum loads for as long as possible;
Corrosion resistance, the ability to use in acids, alkalis, aqueous salt solutions;
Ease of processing (cutting, welding) in any state of the alloy;
wear resistance (maximum service life of products);
Affordable cost of finished products.
