Pure Nickel Strip products engineered to specific customer requirements and high conductivity electronic applications.

Nickel Strip | High Purity

Our pure nickel strip products are custom-engineered to 99.98% purity for critical battery connector applications. We employ an advanced wrought powder metallurgy process to deliver material with significant advantages in comparison to standard wrought nickel battery strip. Key benefits include:
  • 15-20% higher conductivity than traditional cast nickel strip
  • Consistent chemistry control
  • Standard and custom sizes & tempers
  • Short lead-times and small minimum order sizes
  • Superior surface finish

Pure Nickel Strip Grades
We offer three high purity nickel alloy strip grades that are mainly used for battery connector applications:
  • Nickel 270 – UNS N02270 (899A) - WNR 2.4050
  • Nickel 270 strip (899A) is our highest purity material with superior conductivity to cast products and offers the most flexibility in design for cost savings, weight reduction, or increased power.
  • Nickel 201/200 – UNS N02201, N02200 (899L) – WNR 2.4068
  • Nickel 201/200 strip (899L) is our premier battery grade that offers improved conductivity over Nickel 200 and 201 while maintaining closer mechanical properties to the lower conductivity materials.
  • Nickel 201/200 – UNS N02201, N02200 (899M) – WNR 2.4068
  • Nickel 201/200 strip (899M) is produced as a replacement for Nickel 200 and 201 with similar mechanical properties and without the higher conductivities attributed to higher purity grades such as 899L and 899A.

Sizes of Nickel Strip
We specialize in rolling nickel strip and nickel alloy material down to small thicknesses in standard and custom sizes.
  • Thickness: 0.001”(0.0254mm) to 0.060” (1.5mm)
  • Width: 0.060” (1.5mm) to 13” (330mm)
We also work closely with Hamilton Precision Metals, part of AMETEK Specialty Metal Products, to produce strip and nickel foil down to 1.5 microns (.000060”) thickness.
99.98% Pure Nickel Strip for 15-20% Higher Conductivity
We maintain a low temperature roll compacted process to minimize impurities from forming within our nickel strip. Higher purity material reduces impedance and increases conductivity by 15-20% compared to competitive materials. This increased conductivity allows for greater power transmission and higher performance in battery applications. Tight control over low level alloying additions is also an inherent advantage of our wrought powder metallurgy process. In comparison, standard cast products often contain non-metallic inclusions. These impurities are imparted as a result of hot rolling slabs in an unprotected environment.
