Deutsche Nickel GmbH - Wire
Copper-Nickel Alloy Wires
The Copper-Nickel alloys produced by Deutsche Nickel GmbH include the grades CuNi2 (2.0802), CuNi6 (2.0807), CuNi10 (2.0811), CuNi15, CuNi23Mn (2.0881), CuNi44Mn1 (Vernicon, 2.0842), CuNi10Fe1Mn (CW 352H, 2.0872) and CuNi30Mn1Fe (CW 354H, 2.0882).
The electrical resistivity of Copper-Nickel alloy wires is dependent upon the prevailing temperature, amongst other factors.
The CuNi10Fe1Mn and CuNi30Mn1Fe alloys are corrosion resistant Copper-Nickel grades with good resistance to many corrosive media, such as sea water or brackish water environments.
Nickel-Chrome-Iron Alloy Wires
The Nickel-Chrome-Iron alloys manufactured by Deutsche Nickel GmbH include Ferrochronin 600 (Alloy 600, 2.4816), Ferrochronin 600LC (LC-NiCr15Fe, 2.4817), as well as Ferrochronin 601 (Alloy 601, 2.4851).
These alloys exhibit an excellent resistance to scaling even at high temperatures.
These wires are used in the chemical industry and industrial furnace construction, as well as the automobile industry.
Nickel-Copper Alloy Wires
The Nickel-Copper wires produced by Deutsche Nickel GmbH are called Silverin 400 (Alloy 400, 2.4360) and Silverin 500 (Alloy 500, 2.4375).
Due to Silverin 400s excellent resistance to corrosive media and typically metallic appearance, it is used in fields such as the Fastener industry and Optical industry (spectacle frame manufacture).
Furthermore Silverin 500 exhibits relatively high mechanical properties and good corrosion resistance at both low and high temperatures.
Iron-Nickel Alloy Wires
The Iron-Nickel alloys produced by Deutsche Nickel GmbH include the controlled expansion alloys Dilaton 36 (Alloy 36, 1.3912), Dilaton 41 and 42 (Alloy 42 and 1.3917), Dilaton 48 (Ni 48, 1.3922) and Dilaton 29/18 (NiCo 2918, 1.3981). Furthermore, the soft-magnetic grades W48 (Ni 48, 1.3922) and Dilaton 36M (Ni 36, 1.3911), with their slightly modified chemical composition according to DIN 17745, also belong to this alloy group.
These alloys are used in applications where controlled thermal expansion or particular magnetic properties are required.
Due to their special properties, these so-called sealing alloys are also suitable for applications involving bonding metal with glass or ceramic materials.
Typical applications within Electronics include reed switches as well as pins for airbag igniters and hermetically sealed battery housings.
