Description

Sheet grade for general purpose applications where the additional strength of half hard temper material imparts rigidity and spring properties. The presence of nickel provides corrosion and tarnish resistance to levels well in excess of normal brasses. NS104 is soldered and silver brazed without difficulty and is widely used for electrical and electronic components as well as for general engineering and aesthetic purposes.
