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
Because of their high resistance to saltwater corrosion, easy processability and effectiveness in reducing macro fouling, white copper alloys have been used in marine applications. In a variety of marine applications, heat exchangers and condenser tube designs with alloy compositions 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 has excellent ductility and thermal conductivity at low temperatures, which makes it a useful material for cryogenic processing and storage equipment as well as heat exchangers and heat pumps in cryogenic plants.

This material has been used in bullet jackets since the dawn of the 20th century. To eliminate metal dirt from the hole, it was quickly removed and replaced with gold-plated steel.

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

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 less flexible than steel so it’s easier to bend and open. Also, hydraulic components seal it better.

Are copper and nickel alloys strong?
Copper-nickel alloys can have different properties depending upon their composition.
Copper 70/30 has great resistance to corrosion and is very strong.
Copper-rich alloys have ductility and can be hardened only by cold working. They also have high corrosion resistance, high strength, and low resistance coefficient. 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.
