Unlike others, we do not compromise with the purity of the nickel. It is because the conductivity and effectiveness of nickel depend heavily on its purity. However, there is a small amount of impurity that may get into the product while casting it. To avoid this, we try to maintain the lowest temperature that prevents the impurities from getting into the material.

Nickel strips are used as the battery connectors because they have 20-30% more conductivity than other materials. The manufactures look for high conductivity because it allows them to produce batteries in different sizes and shapes. That too, without worrying about the capabilities of the battery to handle power and heat.

Properties of Pure Nickel

Due to its capabilities of holding multiple properties, Nickel use in different applications. Some of them are:

● Thermal Conductivity
● Easy to form in any shape
● Acid Resistance
● Enhanced Weldability
● Resistance to the Chemical Reactions

Powder Metallurgy Process

We, at ARB, provide high-quality nickel strips for different applications. Almost every type of battery can use strips because of the minimum amount of impurity. Additionally, the alloy of our nickel strips is way powerful than a nickel-chromium alloy.

Due to this, manufacturers do not need to adapt to the excessive addition of other materials to achieve specific properties. The better thermal conductivity and low resistance are achievable with the simple use of our nickel strips.

You can also use the high formability and weldability of the nickel slabs to create powerful batteries with minimum efforts.

Thermal Conductivity

Nickel is the most premium material to use as a thermal conductor. They have at least 10% more thermal conductivity than most of the materials (including alloys). The combination of low resistance with high thermal conductivity is what you are looking for high performing batteries.

Electrical Resistivity

Nickel has low electrical resistivity, it can use for different applications. To maintain the low temperature of the heavy appliances commercial nickel suits best. However, one can easily use the alloy of Nickel to improve the formability and weldability of the material. It is safe to use the nickel-chromium alloy as there is only a slight increase in resistivity that can be neglected on a larger scale.

Oxidation

Oxidation and reduction are two important chemical reactions in producing the Nickel strips. It allows the nickel to work as the substrate of the electrode. Additionally, it is helpful for the coating of the Li-Ion batteries with high reliability. There are different researches and practicals to support this experiment in its original form.

Advantages

Our Nickel Strips offer some premium advantages over the regular nickel strips. Some of them are:

● Nickel strips in its pure form offer the better conductivity of electricity. It means that there will be minimal resistance to the electricity in our Nickel Strips.
● Enhanced weldability due to its close composition of atoms. You can change it to any shape you want.
● Works great with the rechargeable batteries of smartphones, laptops, and other electrical gadgets. The application of the nickel strip can go as far as the military appliances.
● Advanced technology reducing the lead time with the standard and constant tempers.

All the battery building processes use nickel for their properties. It has the welding property and high resistance to the corrosion that makes it an ideal material for the batteries. To minimize the battery corrosion, some other materials can add with nickel. However, nickel can resist the corrosive environment against most of the corrosion types.

Manufacturers focus on avoiding the rusting of batteries because it can affect the efficiency and power of the battery pack. Hence, nickel is the most qualified material to be used in the manufacturing of batteries. However, some of the dealers try to replace it with the nickel-plated steel to save some extra money. It is the most common mistake that can increase the electrical resistivity of the battery.

At ARB, we manually check all the Nickel strips for its quality. They go through different quality checks to ensure there is no defected piece going to supply to our business partners. Contact us to know more about the process of getting the nickel strips for the production of your batteries.
