3N8 (99.98%) Nickel (Ni) Wire Evaporation Materials

Nickel (Ni) is a silvery-white lustrous metal with a slight golden tinge. The main usage of nickel is as an alloy element in steel industry, catalyst for hydrogenation, cathodes for rechargeable batteries, pigments and metal surface treatments. It is used as a coating material on steels, Mg and Al alloys to improve their corrosion-resistance behaviors. Nickel coating can also improve light absorption on solar collector receivers. It is often evaporated in vacuum to form a decorative coating on ceramic surfaces or a layer in circuit device, magnetic storage media, fuel cells, and sensors.

Our standard size is 0.5mm Diameter x 20m Length
