Nickel composites are made through electroplating. Electroplating is a hot process wherein a coating is applied on a piece of metal using an electric current. The entire procedure is a continuous one and thus, the results of the final product depends on how long the coating is exposed to the environment.
Nickel composites, like those from Poeton are used in a wide range of applications. They are used in toys for kids and as mechanical components for automotive applications, airplane components, rocket nose cones, etc. The mechanical properties of these composites are also quite similar to those of platinum and rubbers. The biggest difference is that nickel is less elastic; hence, the composite material needs to be cured on a smaller scale.
Nickel composites are being used as coatings on carbon composites and they provide a high level of hardness along with excellent heat resistance. Some of the popular applications include dentistry, electronics, aerospace and energy. Nickel composites are extensively used in the automotive, marine and construction industries due to their inherent properties, which make them highly flexible, durable and safe to work with. They are also widely used in aerospace industries, which uses them in composites as structural components.
They are also widely used in dental Composites because they can stand the pressure generated during in-depth crowns and other orthodontic procedures. In addition, nickel composites are widely used in electrical applications, such as dielectric coatings and soldered joints in applications such as cell phones, laptop computers, television monitors and handheld computers. Nickel is the only element found in all five of these metals that can be used in electrodeposition, and this contributes to the wide range of applications in the metal can be used for.
