Original Press Release:
Belmont Provides a Variety of Shapes for Nickel Plating
Belmont Metals Inc. - non ferrous specialists since 1896 - is a manufacturer of standard & custom non ferrous metals and alloys for casting, plating, brazing, soldering, chemicals, and other uses. We have an extensive inventory, flexibility in formula's, shapes, quantities, and lead times. In addition to long standard nickel shapes Belmont now provides powders and shapes including Dipolarized Ni Anodes, Ni Cathodes, Low Melting Foundry Shot, also Ni-Copper and Cupro Nickel in standard and special compositions.
Nickel is most commonly alloyed with Copper. Virtually all marine valves are made from Cupro-Nickel to withstand sea water corrosion. Indeed, the famous sinking of the U.S. Navy submarine "Thresher" back in the early 1960s brought attention to the need for weldable Cupro-Nickel fittings that soon became standard in the marine industry. Belmont also supplies Monel®, a Nickel-Copper alloy, and Nickel-Silver, which are FDA-approved for materials used in the hygienic transport and storage of dairy and food products. Nickel-Silver's white color is also ideal for many decorative applications such as the trim on stoves, jewelry, antique car parts, and window hardware.
About 10% of today's Nickel is used for electrolytic plating which provides other metals with increased resistance to higher temperatures and corrosion. Nickel's ability to bond with many metals explains its popularity in "sandwich" applications.
