NiMn2 is a nickel/manganese grade for use at temperatures up to 1000°C. The grade is used for electrical resistor terminations.
The addition of Mn to pure nickel brings much improved resistance to sulphur attack at elevated temperatures and improves strength and hardness, without appreciable reduction of ductility.
