What’s the name of a copper and nickel alloy? There are many CuNi alloy that have different properties and can all be used for different purposes.
Cupronickel contains 60-90% of copper.
Constantan: 45% nickel.
Monel: Minimum 52% nickel

For what purpose is copper-nickel?
Oceanographic Engineering
White copper alloys, which are resistant to seawater corrosion and easy processability, are often used in marine applications. In a variety of marine applications, heat exchangers and condenser tube designs with alloys ranging in composition from 90% Cu-10% to 70% Cu-30% are common.

These are some of the most important marine uses for white copper:
Shipbuilding and repair: Hull, ship, seawater cooling, bilge & ballast, sanitation and fire fighting, inert gases, hydraulic and pneumatic cool systems.
Desalination plants are salt water heaters, heat exhaust, recovery and evaporator pipe.
System and splash zone jackets. Offshore oil and natural gas platforms and processing and offshore FPSO vessels.
Power generation: Steam turbine condensers, oil coolers, and auxiliary cooling system.
Seawater system components: heat exchanger tubes, condenser, heat exchanger tubes, tubesheets and pipes, high pressure systems and fittings, pumps, and water tanks.

White copper is a great choice for coinage because of its corrosion resistance and electrical conductivity.

The thermocouple junction can be formed by a pair thermocouple conductors like iron-constantan and copper-constantan. The sheath can be made of copper, stainless steel or copper.

In cryogenic applications, white copper is used. It is very ductile and thermally conductive at low temperatures, making it a useful material for cryogenic processing and storage equipment.

This material has been used in bullet jackets since the dawn of the 20th century. It was replaced quickly by gold-plated steel to reduce metal dirt.

Silver-plated tableware is still made from copper and nickel. It is often used in mechanical and electric equipment, medical equipment, zippers and jewelry items.

Wear-resistant white copper is used to make the cylindrical core for high-quality locking systems and cylindrical locks.

Because white copper is not rusty, it has been used in place of traditional steel brake lines. White copper is more malleable than steel because it is less flexible. Also, white copper can be bent and broken easily.

Are copper and nickel alloys strong?
The properties of copper-nickel alloys will vary depending on the composition.
Copper 70/30 has excellent resistance to corrosion and is very strong.
Copper-rich alloys have ductility and can be hardened only by cold work. They also have high corrosion resistance and high strength. The alloys have a nickel content that allows them to retain their strength even at high temperatures, as opposed to nickel-free copper.

Why copper is alloyed with Nickel?
Copper can be strengthened and resistant to corrosion by adding nickel to it. However, this will not affect its ductility.
