Steel and its alloys have many applications in industry and life in general. Their types and characteristics depends on the types and the amounts of elements present. Therefore, good quality measurements are essential for manufacturing industry to control steel products and processes quality. The objective of this study was to determine the elemental composition of Nickel steel alloys and their concentration. Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry (ICP-AES) was used for the analysis. Analytical results achieved at maximum wavelengths for Nickel 231.604nm, Chromium 267.716nm, Manganese 257.610nm, Silicon 251.611nm and Cupper 324.754nm show that concentrations obtained are in line with those for the reference standard used. Detection limits between 0.00004 to 0.0003 wt% and RSDs of 1.9 – 3.5 % were achieved for the elements analyzed in this study.
