UNS C76200 nickel silver is a copper-nickel alloy formulated for primary forming into wrought products. Nickel silvers are alloys that contain copper, nickel, and zinc (no silver). UNS C76200 should be manufactured by hot or cold working, and annealed if required, to produce a uniform wrought structure that meets the specified temper properties. The nickel silvers have moderately high strength and good corrosion resistance. Nickel silver has good aqueous corrosion resistance.
