Copper Nickel Pipes
Copper-Nickel Pipes or commonly known as Cupronickel pipes are alloys of copper and nickel. Additions of elements such as iron and manganese give these Cu-Ni pipes more strength. Sea-water corrosion resistance in high in these pipes. These CU-Ni pipes produce an oxide layer on the surface when exposed to sea-water, which protects them from further damage. Other damages such as Macrofouling is resisted well in these pipes.
Cu-Ni has excellent ductility, which make it usable in many applications. Cu-Ni pipes have a combination of properties such as corrosion resistance, tensile strength and t
