We have been celebrating stainless steel for the past year and the last chapter on the first 100 years of stainless steel appears on the page opposite. It’s time now to consider some of the ways society will likely be using nickel in the next hundred years.

It’s reasonable to expect that nickel-containing stainless steels will remain a very significant construction material, and for all the familiar reasons. Which is to say its ductility, toughness, strength, weldability, resistance to acids and other corrosive chemicals, and cleanability will all remain in high demand.
