What Is BZn15-20 Zinc Cupronickel?

BZn15-20 zinc cupronickel is a structural copper-nickel alloy. The alloy has a beautiful silver-white appearance, commonly known as German silver. BZn15-20 zinc cupronickel has high strength and corrosion resistance, good plasticity, and can be very good in both hot and cold conditions. It can withstand pressure processing well, has poor machinability, poor weldability, and has better elasticity than QSn6.5-0.1.
