Why wouldn’t we want a product to contain nickel? What is Nickel? Let’s examine where it is used more.
What is Nickel?
Nickel is a precious metal with its silver-like appearance. It is an important raw material of many sectors, especially in industry and medicine.
Nickel whose symbol is “Ni” has an atomic number of 28, atomic mass of 58.69 and an atomic radius of 135 pm. It melts at 1455 degrees. It is quite hard and solid. So, It is located between transition metals in the periodic table. Also, It is an alloy metal with a shiny, golden color, mixed metallic and silver-white color. It is used in many alloys formed with metals such as copper, chrome, aluminum, lead, cobalt, gold and silver.
Nickel is assumed to come to earth from meteor stones falling from the sky. Pure nickel is not found in nature, it usually occurs together with cobalt. It is estimated that there is a dense nickel in the earth’s core.
Where is Nickel Used?
Nickel is a wide range of metal, from coins to the automotive industry. Turkey is a poor country in terms of nickel and is therefore dependent on foreign need for nickel. Nickel demand in the world is increasing gradually compared to the developments in technology.
It is estimated that the history of nickel dates back to 20 BC. There is information about ancient Chinese sources that white nickel was used in 1500s BC. In some sources, it states that the Chinese made guns and candlesticks by melting their nickel shoots in 3000 BC.
Nickel reserve is the most in Canada and Russia in the world. Rich nickel deposits are also found on the islands of New Caledonia in the Pacific Ocean, the overseas territory of France. New Caledonia nickel ranks fourth in world nickel production, with an average of 60 thousand tons of production per year. Nickel deposits are also found in countries such as the United States (USA), Indonesia, Philippines, Australia, Madagascar, Papua New Guinea, Brazil, South Africa, and Cuba.
The nickel reserve in the world is estimated to be 140 million tons. 40 percent of the machinable nickel reserve is found in Cuba, Russia and China. This rate is around 30 percent in developing countries.
What is Nickel Allergy?
There is no nickel reserve in our country. Also, nickel should not be used especially in some products. For example, there is a nickel allergy and this is in 15% of the world population.
As a result of nickel allergy, symptoms such as eczema, skin eczema formation, fatigue and physical weakness and headache may occur in atopic skin. A special diagnostic test is applied to detect nickel allergy. In this test, the immune cells are isolated from the blood sample taken from the person experiencing allergic conditions and the cell culture is created by isolating the immune cells. Then, the reaction of a person’s living cells is measured by contacting nickel.
Therefore, nickel allergy in some people makes it difficult to use this material especially in sectors such as jean button, zipper or belt buckle manufacturing.
