Nickel is a chemical element with symbol Ni and atomic number 28. It is widely used across many industries including aerospace, electric vehicles and AI computing.
What is nickel?
Nickel is a silvery metal with a gold tint that is used in a wide range of industrial and consumer products. It’s commonly used in alloy form, such as Nichrome (Nickel Wire), stainless steel and more. Nickel is an essential component of most modern electronics, from electric vehicle batteries to medical equipment. The goal of NewTek is to seek and invest in better, more efficient ways to utilise nickel in modern technology.
The properties of Nickel
Highly heat resistant and can withstand temperatures of up to 1,200°C.
Extremely thermodynamic in air.
Non-reactive and dissolves slowly in water.
Low oxidation rate
Able to withstand oxidation.
Durable, due to the formation of tough outer layer oxides (depending on alloy type) when exposed to the air.
Highly stable, resulting in lower manufacturing costs.
