Pure nickel is malleable and ductile, and is resistant to corrosion in air or water, and hence is used as a protective coating on busbars or just at busbar joints.

Pure nickel is manufactured by the Mond process, in which impure nickel is reacted with carbon monoxide (CO) to produce Ni(CO)4, which is then decomposed at 200°C to yield 99.99% Ni.


Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxides are a family of mixed metal oxides of lithium, nickel, manganese and cobalt. Nickel is known for its high specific energy, but poor stability. Manganese has low specific energy but offers the ability to form spinel structures that allow low internal resistance.

Nickel Plating can enhance the corrosion resistance, durability, hardness, conductivity, and heat-resistance of a component.
