Abstract

THE annual production of nickel is small in comparison with that of the common industrial metals, iron and steel, copper, lead, zinc and aluminium, but it is a metal of first class engineering importance because it is mainly used in the form of relatively small additions which have a pronounced influence on the properties of other metals, or in the manufacture of alloys with rather unique properties. Thus nickel finds its way into many branches of the metallurgical industry and the alloys in which it is present have numerous uses in most branches of engineering.
