[′nik·əl ′stēl]
(metallurgy)
Carbon steel containing up to 9% nickel as a major alloying element.

nickel steel

Steel containing 3 to 5% nickel and 0.2 to 0.5% carbon; the nickel increases the strength and the elastic limit of the alloy; has better properties (such as greater strength, more ductility, and higher corrosion resistance) than carbon steel.
