Nickel silvers are alloys of copper, nickel, zinc, and are classified by the nickel content. They are good spring materials with good formability and corrosion resistance. The pleasing silver grey is a factor in applications where appearance is important.


Electrical Contacts

Nickel silvers are used for electrical contacts in the electronics and telecommunications industries.

Gift And Tablewares

In this application, the items are often plated with silver. The natural colour and resistance of this alloy to tarnishing means that even when the silver wears off, the item still retains an attractive appearance.

Mechanical Connectors

Due to the favourable strength properties and excellent corrosion resistance, nickel silvers are used for applications such as clips, rivets, screws, hinges and locks.

Other Applications

Other applications include springs, instrument parts, architectural fittings, machined parts, decorative items, resistance wire, musical instrument wire, camera parts.
