Nickel Powder

Our nickel powder products can be produced in different shapes and sizes to meet unique customer needs. Our partner utilizes screening and air classifying techniques to create the specific fraction our customers require.

Working with Novamet, our long-term partner with over 30 years experience creating nickel particles, existing products can be modified or new products can be created to meet customer demands.

Conductive Nickel Powders

Type 525 nickel powders are a high purity filamentary powder that has been screened to remove large or agglomerated particles. They are used in conductive coatings, adhesives and gaskets. Type 525 powder's excellent corrosion resistance, good conductive properties and unique filamentary shape make it very effective in radio frequency and electromagnetic shielding coatings. Small amounts added to coil coatings enhance weld ability. Two versions of Type 525 nickel powder are available, 525 B and 525 LD.

Conductive Nickel Spheres (CNS) were developed for use in conductive inks and pastes where their uniform size, smooth spherical shape and low surface area allow for maximum compaction of the nickel particles in the binder matrix. Up to 30% of CNS can be blended with pure silver without a significant loss of conductivity. The magnetic properties on nickel can be used to align the particles in unique patterns.

Spherical Nickel Powders

Type 4SP nickel powder is a high purity spherical nickel powder that is ideal for making powder metal parts when high sintered density and controlled shrinkage are important. Four size ranges are available.

Type 4SP-10 (-10 micron) powder is the preferred choice for the metal injection molding (MIM) industry. It mirrors the size and shape of the carbonyl iron powder used in MIM and therefore allows for uniform distribution throughout the alloy composition.

Novamet also produces spherical powders SNP-20+10 (-20+10 micron), SNP+20 (+20 micron) and SNP-400 (-400 mesh) to give you a full range of particles sizes.  Other fractions can be developed upon request.

Nickel Oxides

Green Nickel Oxide is an ultra high purity nickel oxide containing 78.5% nickel with total trace elements typically less than 50 ppm. It is used in a variety of electronic applications including ferrites, thermistors, varistors and solid oxide fuel cells. Three versions are available, ranging in size from 1 to 15 microns.
Novamet also offers two grades of high purity Black Nickel Oxide for use in Electronics, Nickel Salts, Catalysts and for Glass Colorants.
Controlled Surface Area Nickel Oxide is produced by Novamet. Novamet custom tailors the surface area of our Black Nickel Oxide for a variety of catalyst applications.
Brown Grade Nickel Oxide is a 75% nickel oxide used in inorganic color pigments such as nickel titanate yellow.
