Nickel alloys allow lower engine weights, even as they develop more thrust, and high operating temperatures. Less weight means less fuel consumption, and that in turn means aircraft can carry more cargo and passengers.

Safe Use of Nickel

The Nickel Institute aims to educate persons who are responsible for the health maintenance of workers exposed to nickel, its compounds and alloys about the potential hazards associated with exposure to various forms of nickel. It strives to instruct them in the safe handling of nickel-containing substances in the workplace.


Nickel-containing architectural stainless steels are consistently among the most environmentally friendly metals commonly used in construction. Stainless steel’s low maintenance costs and durability make it a sustainable choice in many architectural applications.

Nickel and Surface Technology

Nickel metal is valuable and essential for modern durable surface finishing and refurbishing of mechanical parts. In fact, in a number of demanding applications, performance expectations can only be met by nickel.
