Nickel is the main alloying element in austenitic stainless steels, and its main function is one million and stabilizes austenite.

In austenitic stainless steels, the addition of nickel and the increase in nickel content lead to an increase in the thermodynamic stability of the steel, so austenitic stainless steels have better properties of rust and oxidation resistant media, and with nickel The content is increased and the performance of the reducing medium is further improved. It is worth noting that nickel is the only important element to improve the austenitic stainless resistance to the transgranular stress corrosion of many media.

The price of Ni starts to rise up:
