Nickel Silver

Called “nickel silver” because of its silver appearance, the alloy actually contains no elemental silver. It is a copper alloy with nickel and often zinc.

Due to its attractive appearance, photo etched nickel silver is often used in ornamental items such as jewelry and decorative accessories. 

It also serves several other industries, including marine and plumbing applications, because of its corrosion resistant, ductile and strong properties.
