- Silver has great thermal and electrical conductivity
- Bright Metal
- Soft & Ductile
- High malleability
Pure silver (99.9% silver) is an extremely soft metal that cannot be used in functional materials. Therefore it is alloyed with copper and other metals like zinc, platinum and germanium to produce industrially functional alloys. It offers good malleability.
Silver is a soft, ductile, malleable and bright metal. It has very high electrical and thermal conductivity.
Silver is used in jewelry, silverware, food additives and color, photographic industry, solders, electrical contacts, silver-cadmium and silver-zinc batteries. It is also used in the production of electronic printed circuits and mirror.

Antibacterial glass is finished with a thin silver layer to avoid viral infection dispersion. It is also useful in decreasing the infection risk. Silver is also useful in homeopathic treatments for entire diseases.
Oral: Silver is combined with other metals like mercury or tin to prepare amalgam for cavity filling.
Photography: Silver has been conventionally being used in photography industry. However with the introduction of digital cameras, its use is significantly reduced almost half.
Silver is commonly used in electrical and electronic applications for its good conductivity such as in circuits, contacts, preamplifiers and batteries.
Optics & Mirrors : Silver is used in mirrors because of its high reflection properties. it is also suitable for glass coating.
