N6 High Purity Nickel Foil,Nickel Strip,Nickel Based Alloy Plates 99.5%
Nickel is a silver-white metal which occurs mainly in the sulfide and arsenic ores. It is extracted by
roasting to NiO and then reducing using carbon. Pure nickel is manufactured by the Mond process, in
which impure nickel is reacted with carbon monoxide (CO) to produce Ni(CO)4, which is then
decomposed at 200C to yield 99.99% Ni. Nickel has an abundance of 80 ppm in the earth's crust.
Most foils are produced from cast ingots for use in coating and thin film Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD)
and Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) processes including Ultra High Purity (99.9+%) thin film foilThermal
and Electron Beam (E-Beam) Evaporation, Low Temperature Organic Evaporation, Atomic Layer
Deposition (ALD), Organometallic and Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) for specific applications
such as fuel cells and solar energy.
