Any combination or compound of metals fused together; a mixture of metals; for example, brass, which is an alloy of copper and zinc. But when mercury is one of the metals, the compound is called an amalgam.
Gold which has been mixed with another metal to provide certain characteristics, (such as colour or hardness) is known as an alloy. Common alloys used in the jewellery industry are 22 carat, 18 ct, 14 ct & 9 ct. Pure gold is 24 carat.
A metal that contains one or more other elements usually added to increase stength or give the base metal important properties. Alloy wheels are commonly made of a combination of aluminum (for its light weight) and steel (for its high strength).
(die) Legierung An alloy is a solution of two or more chemical elements, of which one at least is a metal. Good examples are â†’bronze a mixture of â†’Copper and Tin, or Carbon-steel, an alloy of â†’Carbon and iron.
A substance containing two or more chemical elements, at least one of which is metal. The substance usually has metallic properties and possesses qualities different from those of the individual components.
1) In semiconductor processing the alloy process step refers to a heat treatment used to improve the metallurgical interaction between the silicon substrate and the interconnect metals. This improves ohmic contact. 2) Metallurgically is used to mean the blending together of two or more metals to form a particular compound.
A mixture of different metals that have been combined when the metal is in a molten state, usually combined to improve hardness or other qualities lacking in one of the metals and present in the other(s.)
A metal such as bronze, pewter or brass formed by melting together two or more elements such as copper, zinc and tin. Metals are normally used in the form of alloys to make them more durable and easier to work; STERLING STANDARD silver, for example, contains a proportion of copper or some other base metal.
A substance having metallic properties and combined by the fusion or diffusion of two or more chemical elements, of which at least one is an elemental metal. Silver with a purity less than .999 is an alloy.
Homogeneous mix (in general solid solution, and sometimes, with intermetallic compounds or carbides) in which there are two or more elements. For example Iron alloy with lower or higher percentages of Carbon and other elements (Cr, Mn, Ni, Mo, W etc.) forming steels.
a combination of two or more metals or a metal and another element to produce a metal with different characteristics. Alternating current electric current which changes direction from +ve to -ve at a set frequency Ampere This is the unit of electrical current, often shortened to Amp. It is given the symbol ' ' in calculations and can be found by dividing volts with ohms.
Any combination of metals used to produce a club head or shaft. Alloys may contain aluminum, steel, beryllium, nickel, copper, titanium, or other metals in varying combinations. Less than honest descriptions of products often have the term "alloy" in them to hide the fact that the product may only contain trace elements of the desired metal. For example, "titanium alloy" may actually contains 98% aluminum and only 2% titanium which may be used to confuse the consumer with "real titanium" that has high levels of titanium. Alloy is often a code word for substituting a cheap metal for an expensive metal.
noun: a metal or hard substance made of two or more different kinds mixed together, verb - to mix substances together to make the alloy Alloying the metal with other elements made it almost indestructible
An alloy consists of an intimate mixture of two elements, usually metals to give a metal compound or solid solution. Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin and brass on of copper and zinc. By varying the composition it is possible to alter the chemical and physical properties of the alloy such as conductivity, ductility and corrosion resistance.
a metal made up of a mixture of two or more different metals. Common examples of alloys include bronze (a mixture of copper and tin), brass (copper and zinc), and pewter (tin with antimony, copper and sometimes lead).
Mixture of gold with either another precious metal (usually silver or palladium), a base metal (copper or nickel) or a combination of both. The presence of other metals renders gold harder and more durable and thus better able to withstand machining particularly during the manufacture of jewellery. See carat.
When precious metals like Gold and Platinum are mixed with other metals to strengthen them and change their properties, the result is called an Alloy. Platinum is often mixed with ruthenium or iridium, to produce 950 or 900 Platinum. Gold is mixed with zinc, copper, nickel and/or silver to produce different Gold alloys.
the combination of two or more metals to optimize material properties. Most cast titanium clubheads, for example, consist of 90 percent titanium, 6 percent aluminum and 4 percent vanadium yielding a combination that is stronger than pure titanium.
metallurgical product resulting from the combination of several metals. The alloys make it possible to obtain various characteristics: hardness, flexibility, lightness, conductivity, anti-corrosive, facility of fusion, machinability...
A mixture of two or more metals melted together. Generally, when two metals are alloyed together, the resulting material exhibits properties unique to the alloy and different from either of the constituents.
An alloy is the homogeneous mixture or solid solution of two or more metallic elements or metallic and nonmetallic elements. The alloy is usually achieved by bringing the metals to a molten state under high temperatures and fusing or dissolving them into one solid solution. In jewelry, combining different metals is commonly done to augment the color, hardness and/or luster of the resulting alloy.
When two or more metals are melted or joined together, an alloy is formed. This is done to harden or strengthen other metals, such as silver added to gold; or to form a metal not found in nature, e.g., copper and zinc to form brass. Alloys have different properties from their constituent elements; e.g., they are poorer conductors of heat and electricity, often harder, and, with the exception of aluminum alloys, more resistant to corrosion.
A mixture of two or more metals accomplished in a molten state. Alloys are formulated to increase desired properties. Fine silver (.999) is too soft and subject to wear to be of utility, it is alloyed with small amounts copper and other metals too increase its hardness and durability.
When a base metal, such as aluminum or iron, is combined with additional elements, the resulting metal mixture is called an alloy. The advantage of an alloy metal is that its basic ingredients are greatly enhanced when blended together. For example, brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. When the two elements are separate, they are less durable and not as attractive as when they are combined to form brass.
A mixture of two or more metals. Metals such as silver, nickel, copper and zinc are frequently mixed with gold to improve its hardness and/or change its color. American Eagles: Products of the U.S. Mint, and since their debut in 1986 have become this country's most popular gold bullion coin. Struck in a traditional coinage alloy of 91.7% pure gold (22 karat), each size contains a full measure of pure gold, plus additional silver and copper as alloy. .
A combination of two or more metals. An alloy usually gets its name from the metal that is either more expensive or in the majority. Thus 14k gold is a gold alloy where there is 58% gold and the rest is other metals. See K
a mixture of atomic species exhibiting metallic properties and usually prepared by adding other metals or non-metals to solvent metal in the liquid state. But may also be formed from sintered powders or by by intimate mixing by mechanical means. They may be single or multiple phase where the phases exist as pure elements, solid solutions or intermetallic compounds.
An alloy is a combination of two or more metals. Common alloys used in jewelry are: gold under 24 Kt (mixed with silver, copper, and/or other metals), sterling silver (92.5% silver, 7.5% copper), brass (roughly half copper, half zinc), bronze (at least 60% copper with tin and perhaps other metals), and pewter (tin, lead, antimony, and a bit of silver or copper).
a mixture of two or more metals. Several alloys are used to repair teeth: noble (mostly silver), high noble (mostly gold) and "base" metals. The cost of a filling or crown depends on which alloy is used.
A material composed of two or more metals which are mixed and united-usually when they are in a molten state. Alloys are created to improve properties such as the appearance, strength and durability of metals. Common alloys include cast iron, stainless steel, brass, bronze and sterling silver.
A substance with metallic properties, composed of two or more chemical elements of which at least one is metal. More specifically, aluminum plus one or more other elements produced to have certain specific, desirable characteristics.
A substance having metallic properties and composed of two or more chemical elements of which at least one is metal. A metallic material formed by mixing two or more chemical elements. Usually possess properties different from those of the components. As examples, Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and Cast Iron contains iron, carbon and silicon. See Cast Iron.
A metal that is comprised of a mixture of at least two different types of metals. For instance, 18K gold is only 75% pure gold, but is preferred because pure gold is too soft to be used for most jewelry.
A compound consisting of either multiple metals or a metal and a nonmetal blended together. An aluminum alloy consists of aluminum and at least one other element, but usually consists of a combination of elements such as zinc and silicon.
A combination of two or more metals. Common alloys used in jewellery include gold with less than 24 carat (mixed with silver, copper, and/or other metals), sterling silver (92.5% silver, 7.5% copper), brass (roughly half copper and half zinc), bronze (at least 60% copper with tin and possibly other metals), and pewter (tin, lead, antimony, and a little silver or copper).
