Flat, Shaped and Round Wire 

Applications 


Resistance Wire, Hardware, Optical components, Photographic applications, Screws, Rivets, Base metal for plated jewelry 


Description 


Nickel silvers are alloys that contain copper, nickel, and zinc (no sliver). The nickel silvers have moderately high strength and good corrosion resistance. They have low to moderate strength and good aqueous corrosion resistance.
