[Neutron] Buying Null Scattering Alloys for ambient sample cans?

Does anyone have recommendations for null scattering
alloys that can be easily machined for ambient temp
and pressure neutron powder diffraction sample cans?

Is there anything better than Zr/Ti?

Anyone have experience purchasing rods of this
null scattering material for making cans - and
stability when used with a variety of room
temp style sample compostions?

Thanks in advance,
