SILVER COPPER ALLOY - AgCu1

General Description

ELEKTRISOLA silver wire AgCu1 consists of 99% silver and a maximum of 1% copper. The high silver content leads to a bright and shiny surface which gives the wire an extraordinary look. This makes it the first choice for colored wire used in jewelry.
Due to the antibacterial and antifungal properties of silver, bare wire made of AgCu1 is used in high-tech textiles.
