Dilver

A nickel-iron alloy containing between 42% and 50% of nickel. Has an expansion coefficient similar to that of glass and is used for the "seal wires" of electric lamps etc, since it provides a perfectly gas-tight joint with the glass. Replaces metallic platinum which was formerly used for this purpose. Is often used in the copper-coated condition, which provides a still stronger union between glass and metal.
