Nickel Silver Alloy

NS106 Nickel Silver Alloy

NS106 is a nickel silver alloy which contains an alpha phase structure. The alloy offers good corrosion resistance to many organic products, waters and corrosive atmospheres but poor resistance to oxidising acids. NS106 has excellent cold formability and is widely used in the production of telecommunications equipment. Due to the alloys aesthetically appealing colour (silver, blue & white), NS106 is also used for architectural purposes in panelling and fascias.
