Annealed (OS025) C75400 Nickel Silver

OS025 C75400 nickel silver is C75400 nickel silver in the OS025 (annealed to 0.025mm grain size) temper. It has the second lowest strength and second highest ductility compared to the other variants of C75400 nickel silver.

The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare OS025 C75400 nickel silver to: wrought copper-nickels (top), all copper alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
