- May 02, 2018 -


An alloy is a mixture of two or more metallic elements, which retains its metallic bonding character.

non-ferrous alloy is an alloy which does not contain iron.

Examples include bronze (copper and tin) and brass (copper and zinc), as well as numerous alloys of aluminium, magnesium, nickel, titanium and others. They tend to be lighter than ferrous alloys, if not quite as strong, and so find plenty of applications in aerospace.

Non ferrors alloys are the alloys in which the base metal( solvent or major proportion metal) is nonferrous metal like Al Ni Cu etc. And solute metal is either ferrous or nonferrous metal.

Cu alloys includes various types of Brasses and Bronzes. Ni-Fe alloy include various popular grades like inconel, monel, etc. The popular alloy of Al and Cu is the Duralumin which can be precipitation hardened.
