90-10 cu-ni for back up bar for SS?

I have a couple pieces of 1/2" thick Cu-Ni plate that I was planning on using for back up when welding steel. Before I try it with
stainless I though maybe I should ask here if this is a good idea. I know pure copper will work but I don't have any 1/2" thick copper plate. Thanks, Eric
