Silver is a white coloured precious metal.
It is an excellent conductor of heat and offers great solderability. It is malleable and has a high degree of lubricity.
Silver finds usage in bearing surfaces and anti galling applications. Being ductile, it may be bent into any shape and is hence preffered by jewellery and flatware industries for its decorative appeal.
Silver is an economically beneficial metal that may be put to good use for a relatively cheaper price as compared to other precious metals like gold or platinum.
