What is Nickel Foam?
Nickel Foam is a complex network of connected cells with a large surface area. It is a low-density & 75%- 95% high porosity metal foam. It is highly absorbent and well-suited for many industrial uses.
It has high durability and can be used for various industrial applications. It is highly malleable and ductile and shows amazing thermal and electrical conductivity.
Features of Nickel Foam
It is versatile and shows some wonderful features
High Heat Resistance & Excellent Thermal Conductivity
It is perfect for various applications like heat sinks, thermal insulation, and electronic cooling. It can withstand temperatures up to 1100 °C. It can be used in extremely hot environments. It is also used as a catalyst in many industrial applications because of its high-temperature tolerance capacity.
Very Good Electrical Conductivity
It is mainly used for applications that need excellent electrical conductors. It is used as a current collector, electrode substrate, or electromagnetic shielding material. It helps with smooth power flow and high performance.
Exceptional Corrosion Resistance
This metal foam is highly durable and long-lasting because it can resist corrosion. It can perform well in harsh environments and acidic or alkaline conditions. Nickel cannot be oxidized easily; therefore, it can perform well under formidable situations. It is safe from rust and damage due to oxidation.
Useful in various Industries
It is used in a wide range of industries, like electronics, aerospace, energy storage, chemical engineering, etc. It is an important component of batteries, fuel cells, catalytic converters, and filtration systems. It is also used in many other modern technological inventions.
We understand that every project has different requirements. Therefore, this metal foam is available in various thicknesses, porosities, and dimensions. So that our products can help users with their requirements. We work closely with users to provide customized solutions that meet their needs.
Applications of Nickel Foam
Suitable for use in various fields
Battery and Supercapacitor
Its lightweight, high porosity and stability make it an excellent choice for battery and supercapacitor applications. It is used as a substrate for in-situ hierarchical electrode preparation and thin film deposition. The Nickel foam improves the cycling performance of the battery. It also gives the battery a better rate capability and larger charge/discharge capacity.
It works as a catalyst for support. It reduces ion transfer resistance and eases the diffusion of gaseous products. It is used in automotive catalytic converters, catalytic combustion, and catalytic filters for diesel engine particulates.
Heat Dissipation and Insulation
It is generally used in heat sinks, electronic cooling, and thermal insulation. It efficiently transfers heat away from sensitive components. This gives high performance and increases the life of electronic devices. It is also used in applications where we need to reduce heat loss and improve energy efficiency.
Filtration and Separation
It is a highly porous structure; therefore, this is an excellent option if a user is looking for filtration and separation. It can easily capture and remove particulates, impurities, and contaminants from different liquids and gases. This makes the end product cleaner and purer.
It is a good conductor of electricity. So, it is used as an electromagnetic shielding material. It blocks Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). It also protects sensitive electronic devices from unwanted electromagnetic radiation.
Operators should follow a few safety measures while working with Nickel Foam.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Always wear proper PPE, like gloves, safety glasses, and protective clothing, while using it.
Users should ensure that their work area is well-ventilated so that all the fumes and microparticles generated during cutting, shaping, or other processes involving this metal Foam can be reduced.
Handling and Storage
Store it in a dry, well-ventilated area away from moisture, acids, and alkalis. Handle with care to avoid sharp edges that may cause cuts or abrasions.
It is combustible in certain conditions. Therefore it should not be exposed to open flames or high-temperature environments. Use proper extinguishing agents such as carbon dioxide, foam, or dry powder in case of fire.
Dispose of Nickel Foam waste according to the rules and guidelines set by the municipality. Consult the local authorities in nearby areas for proper disposal methods.
