Descriptions of NICKEL 201Molybdenum-Lanthanum-Wire

A commercially pure Nickel (typically 99.6% Nickel), Nickel 201 is essentially the same as Nickel 200, but with a lower Carbon content to prevent embrittlement by inter granular carbon at temperatures over 315oC (600oF). Lower carbon content also reduces hardness.

It is resistant to acids and alkalis, and dry gases at room temperature. It is also resistant to mineral acids depending on the temperature and concentration of the solution.
