Tag: Alloy Properties of Nickel and Its Alloys

Nickel is resistant to alkaline corrosion under nonoxidizing conditions but is corroded by oxidizing acids and oxidizing salts. It is resistant to fatty acids, other mildly acid conditions, such as food processing and beverages, and resists oxidation at temperatures as high as 1600F. Monel is widely used in kitchen equipment. It is better than nickel in reducing conditions like warm unaerated acids, and better

Tag: Alloy Aluminum-Alloy Designations

The alloys may be classified: (1) as cast and wrought, and (2) as heat-treatable and non-heat-treatable. Wrought alloys can be worked mechanically by such processes as rolling, extruding, drawing, or forging. Alloys are heat-treatable if the dissolved constituents are less soluble in the solid state at ordinary temperatures than at elevated temperatures, thereby making age-hardening possible. When heat-treated to obtain complete solution, the product may

Tag: Alloy Steel Alloys

Plain carbon steels can be given a great range of properties by heat treatment and by working; but addition of alloying elements greatly extends those properties or  makes the heat-treating operations easier and simpler. For example, combined high tensile strength and toughness, corrosion resistance, high-speed cutting, and many other specialized purposes require alloy steels. However, the most important effect of alloying is the
