Properties of Alloys

DEFINITION: An alloy is a metal (parent metal) combined with other substances (alloying agents), resulting in superior properties such as;strength, hardness, durability, ductility,tensile strength and toughness. The parent metal is the majority of the alloy.

Properties of Alloys

Various alloys have different properties like strength, malleability, visual attractiveness etc. Copper and tin uses to make Bronze, an important alloy harder than copper. This quality has been utilized for imprint the civilization and history of mankind for thousands of years called bronze age. In our daily life, mankind uses alloys in almost all of the fields that uses metals. Most known elements have involvement in making alloys thus we have tens of thousands of alloy products. Alloys are attractive due to its improved quality for make utilizing the pure elemental metals.

Properties of Wrought and Cast Copper Alloys

The updated copper alloys database includes all of the properties data that had been previously spread across multiple CDA publications. In a single search, you can find not only basic Chemical Compositions, Mechanical, Physical and Thermal Properties, but also extended information for many alloys on:

  • Casting Characteristics (for cast alloys)
  • Fabrication Properties
  • Typical Uses of Copper Alloys
  • Fabrication Practices and Common Fabrication Processes
  • Applicable Specifications (Cross Specifications Index)
  • Corrosion Properties
