Home Is Where The Nickel Is

How nickel helps support comfortable living

Nickel Everyday

Take a quick look around any home and you’re sure to see plenty of examples of products made from stainless steel and other nickel alloys.

They gleam on the exterior panels of kitchen appliances, bring  polished brightness to sinks and faucets, and add cleanliness and durability to the pots and pans, flatware and utensils tucked away in drawers and cabinets. Take a closer look and you’ll find stainless inside the dishwasher, in the drum of the clothes dryer, and even hard at work on the patio, protecting the gas barbeque from the elements.

But these are only the most obvious applications of nickel alloys in the consumer goods we use every day – and they barely scratch the shiny surface of the way nickel-containing materials are used in today’s homes.
