Nickel Silver Alloy

NS101 Nickel Silver Alloy

NS101 is a nickel silver alloy which is often referred to as 'nickel-brass'.

Most Commonly Used Nickel Silver

The alloy offers good atmospheric corrosion resistance and is one of the most commonly used grades of nickel rod silver. NS101 has good machinability and is readily formed into complex shapes by hot stamping. The surface of the material is tarnish-resistant and aesthetically pleasing - with an attractive silvery gold colour. NS101 is classed as a 10% nickel-containing alloy. We also provide in-house processing services where your nickel silver material will be processed to size.
