Nickel silver is made up generally of Copper, Zinc and Nickel. The nickel content gives the alloy a silvery appearance, making it ideal for use in the decorative industry, ie jewellery, cutlery and coin manufacuring. It is also widely used for electonic components and in the spring manufacturing industry. Allied Copper Alloys are a leading U.K. distributor of Nickel Silver.
