Home Products Alloys Nickel Beryllium Alloys Alloy 360 NICKEL BERYLLIUM ALLOY 360 Alloy 360 nickel beryllium strip combines unique mechanical and physical properties required in today’s electrical / electronic systems, heavy duty controls, electromechanical devices and other high performance applications. To learn more about nickel beryllium Alloy 360 strip physical and mechanical properties, sizes and tolerances, download our Alloy 360 data sheet. ADVANTAGES AND BENEFITS The benefits of using nickel beryllium Alloy 360 strip include ultimate tensile strength approaching 300,000 psi, yield strength up to 245,000 psi, excellent formability, stress relaxation less than 5% at 400º F, and fatigue strength (in reverse bending) of 85,000 - 90,000 psi at 10 million cycles. ALLOY 360 APPLICATIONS Nickel beryllium Alloy 360 is used for mechanical and electrical/electronic components that are subjected to elevated temperatures (up to 700°F/350°C for short times) and require good spring characteristics at these temperatures. Applications include thermostats, bellows, diaphragms, burn-in and test sockets. Nickel beryllium alloy 360 is also used for high-reliability, corrosion resistant belleville washers in fire protection sprinkler heads.
