PANACEA

PANACEA (protection against nickel allergy, corrosion, erosion, and abrasion) is a nickel-free stainless steel that is highly resistant to corrosion yet polishes well. Originally developed for the medical industry, it is now used for other applications across different markets, including electronics and wearable devices. The alloy is best suited for a component that has constant skin contact. Because Panacea is nickel-free, it will not affect consumers who have a nickel-sensitivity, as many other stainless steels will.
