Nickel 205 & 270 Applications

EFINEA is a leading supplier of Nickel 205 (UNS N02205) and Nickel 270 (UNS N02270) along with other grades of commercially pure nickels. Nickel 205 is designed for use in electrical and electronic applications.  Nickel 270’s high purity and slightly different composition has made this material beneficial for hydrogen thyratrons, electrical resistance thermometers and as a substrate for precious metal cladding.

Typical examples of applications that include Nickel 205 and Nickel 270 in the formulation:

  • Anode plates
  • Battery plaques
  • Cathode shankes
  • Electron tube cathodes
  • High-temperature electrical leads
  • Magnetostrictive devices
  • Passive cathodes
  • Plater bars
  • Semi-conductor packaging cans
  • Transistor enclosures

When your next project requires electronic grades of nickel, contact the EFINEA sales team toll-free at 800-348-6268.  We will gladly review the nickel grades, forms and sizes we stock and how our competitive pricing along with customer service, beats the competition.
