Nickel 200 is a solid reinforced solution, a commercially pure wrought material with good mechanical properties over a wide temperature range and excellent resistance to corrosion, especially hydroxides. It also has outstanding caustic alkali resistance at various concentrations and temperatures. Nevertheless, the corrosion resistance in de-aerated acid is greater. Low gas and vapour density and high electrical and thermal conductivity are present in the alloy.
In reducing and neutral media, as well as in oxidising atmospheres, the Nickel 200 plates provide corrosion resistance provided that the oxidising media can form a passive oxide film. In caustic conditions, this oxide film represents excellent resistance to the materials. The corrosion resistance of nickel 200 in refined and natural waters is excellent.

Applications of Nickel 200 Alloy
Nickel 200 Alloy is used in chemical processing and storage, synthetic fibre production, and sodium hydroxide and fluorine processes. The other uses of these Nickel 200 alloys are aerospace and defence, as well as food processing. Nickel 200 Alloy is very tolerant of caustic alkali at different temperatures and concentrations.
The Nickel 200 Alloy is also used in the manufacture of different equipment for food processing. It is also known as a food grade alloy because it does not react to the metal, keeping the food healthy and pure. The alloy is also used in sodium hydroxide production and handling, especially at temperatures above 300 degrees F.
The Nickel Alloy 200 is also used to produce reactors and vessels in which fluorine is produced and reacted with hydrocarbons. Some other Nickel 200 Alloy applications include salt manufacturing, marine and offshore engineering, chemical transport drums, and rocket engines.
