This dead-soft, nickel alloy sheet offers the benefit of having this popular and affordable fabrication metal on hand when you need it; custom-cut it to the exact size and shape your design requires. Due to the capabilities of the mills that produce it, each sheet may have scratches or blemishes.
Dead-soft sheet is easy to bend, shape and hammer; it is an ideal starting point for forming, shaping and wire-wrapping. Keep in mind that hardness is changeable (by annealing or heat-hardening) and is relative among metal types (each temper will feel and handle differently from one metal to another). When finishing your pieces, also keep in mind that the harder the metal is, the brighter a finish it will take.
Although commonly referred to as "nickel silver" or German silver, this nickel alloy actually contains no silver but offers an attractive—and very affordable—white-metal fabrication material ideal for a variety of design work and fabrication tasks.
CDA #752 alloy (65% copper, 17% zinc, 18% nickel).
