Nickel is a ductile and ferromagnetic metal reputed for its anti-corrosive and antioxidant properties. It is widely used in the form of copper nickel in the production of coins. Nickel is also used in the treatment of surfaces with nickel plating: it provides a bright finish with excellent corrosion prevention performance. The jewellery sector uses nickel with gold (Au) to enhance the durability of jewellery and colour brilliance.
