Nickel silver is a metal alloy of copper with nickel and often but not always zinc. The usual formulation is: 60% Copper / 20% Nickel / 20% Zinc. It is named for its silvery appearance, but contains no elemental silver unless plated. Other common names for this alloy are: new silver German silver, paktong, and alpacca (or alpaca). It is noted for both corrosion resistance and high electrical resistance.
