Metallic Alloys

What is a metallic alloy?

  • a metal made by combining two or more metallic elements, especially to give greater strength or resistance to corrosion


How are alloys made?

  • There are three ways to make an alloy. The first way you they can be made is heat and melt to make a liquid, then mix, and let cool into a solid form. The second way alloys can be made is by turning the components into a powder substance, mix them together, and fuse them with a combination of high pressure and high temperature. The third, most common, way alloys are made is making fire beams of ions into the surface layer of a piece of metal.


Examples of alloys:


  • coin metal, used to make U.S. coins
  • brass bronze, used in inexpensive jewelry
  • duralumin, used in aircrafts, boats, and railroad cars
  • nichrome, used in toasters and electric heaters
  • phosphor bronze, used in boat propellers
  • sterling silver, used in jewelry and art objects
