Nickel-Silver Alloy

Nickel silver, also known as German silver, Argentan, paktong, new silver, nickel brass, or alpacca (or alpaca), is a copper alloy with nickel and often zinc. It is named for its silvery appearance and does not contain the element silver (Ag). These blends offer high strength, durability, and high corrosion resistance.
Many different formulations of alloys fall within the general term of “Nickel Silver;” include your required chemistry in the additional notes.
