To better serve you, we would like to discuss your specific requirement, Please Contact Us for a quote.

Silver (Ag) is a soft, white, lustrous transition metal. It exhibits the highest electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and reflectivity of any metal. It is used in solar panels, water filtration, jewelry, ornaments, high-value tableware and utensils, in electrical contacts and conductors, in specialized mirrors, window coatings, in catalysis of chemical reactions, as a colorant in stained glass, and in specialized confectionery. Aside from optical field, it is also used as a coating material for cathodes to improve their electrochemical properties and for biomaterials to prevent infection. 

The dimensions and purities can be customized upon request. Please contact us for customization or bulk orders
