There are very few cases when you can use a clean metal shape. This most often happens with precious metals, such as gold, silver and platinum, but even they usually mix with other metals to increase their strength and durability.
Alloys offer users additional strength, and a wide range of other properties, usually not found in the metal of the alloy. In the following are some common alloys, their source metals and a description of their properties and applications.
Brass: Copper alloy / Zinc.
Malical with acoustic properties that make it ideal for use in musical instruments;
bronze: rafting copper / tin
Hard and strong bronze is used in the manufacture of coins, springs, turbines and blades; lower melting point; usually heavier than steel.
Steel: Iron / Car alloy alloy.
A mixture of various metals, such as iron and carbon; used in buildings, guns, ships, cars, machines, instruments, weapons and other.
Stainless steel: alloy steel / chrome. Many different brands of stainless steel; used in dishes, surgical tools and industrial equipment. Here you can order a stainless steel sheet.
Instrumental steel: alloy graphite / tungsten / manganese.
Hard and resistant to abrasion, as well as the ability to hold the cutting edge; used for the manufacture of manual tools and the process of casting under pressure
Titan: Iron / aluminum alloy.
Low-tight, corrosion-resistant metal; usually alloyed with iron, aluminum, vanadium and molybdenum.
Although the list above is not final, it gives customers an idea of various metal alloys available to satisfy their needs. When choosing an alloy for a particular project, it is recommended to decide what is required of the alloy used. Some criteria are strength, flexibility, durability and how difficult it is to work with metal.
