A welder’s starter guide for nickel and nickel-based materials
Nickel and its alloys have been used as a durable, corrosion resistant material since ancient times. Today, the relatively rare ore remains one of the most important industrial metals, widely used across a broad range of applications and environments. But while the material is durable and versatile, it’s relatively difficult to weld and work.
In this free whitepaper, we cover 10 practical facts about this rare metal and its ores to provide you with a solid foundation from nickel repositories to best practices.
- The industrial applications of nickel and nickel-based materials and their uniquely strong characteristics
- What elements nickel can alloy with, how they are categorized, and their use cases and main characteristics
- The weldability and workability of nickel, potential pitfalls and best practices
