Alloy Properties: Altering the Composition of Metals

For specific applications, you know that using alloys will be the best choice when you are looking for metals that will provide special properties such as strength, thermal conductivity or corrosion resistance. Yet you may be wondering why you can’t simply use the metal it its original form. For example, why can’t you get the…

Magnesium Elements: Providing Positive Benefits to Copper and Aluminum Alloys

Alloys on their own can offer a range of mechanical and structural benefits for manufacturers and other industries. Yet your application may require the alloy to have increased strength, workability, or ductility for the particular application. Magnesium is one of many chemical elements that becomes added to other alloys such as copper and aluminum to…

Silicon: Increasing the Properties of Aluminum and Copper Alloys

Copper and aluminum are used in a range of applications around the world. You can find aluminum as beverage cans, metal building sheets and storage tanks. Copper is often found in environments that are electrically conducive, as you may see it as wiring. You can also find copper in electronics and used as brass or…

Cold Working Aluminum Alloys

When considering working and manufacturing with metals, particularly with aluminum, the first thoughts are centered on the heating process with hot furnaces where the metal is heated to extremely high temperatures and then wrought or cast into form. However, there is another type of process to strengthen the metal that involves adding other alloys to…

Grain Refinement of Aluminium Alloys

Look around you. You live in a world that contains raw materials that are formed and produced into the products you use and the homes you live in. One of the most widely available metals in the world is aluminum. It is the second most abundant element in the environment as we use it in…

Custom creations

Aluminum master alloys help metallurgists fine-tune alloys to create materials that are stronger, lighter, and more easily processed Aluminum is the most abundant metallic element in the Earth’s crust—it’s even more common than Iron. In its pure form, though, it’s soft and malleable. It needs to be alloyed with other elements, including Iron, Zinc, Silicon,…

Beyond base metals

Minor metals are major players in high-tech innovation Typically the word “minor” refers to things of lesser importance, size or degree. Minor metals, however, are far from inferior—they are major players in a wide range of specialty, high-tech industries and used to create alloys with desirable mechanical properties, including deformability and corrosion resistance. Minor metals…

The right metal for the job

Custom alloys can help streamline production Although custom alloys often are associated with new and advanced applications, they also can solve real-world production problems. For more than a century, Belmont Metals, based in Brooklyn, New York, has been working collaboratively with its customers to create materials that can improve their manufacturing processes. Coming up with…

Controlling composition using Master Alloys

Create materials that meet specific needs by adding master alloys to the mix It’s important to choose the right materials for a job. Using inferior or unsuitable materials can make completing a project more difficult or even derail it entirely. In the metals industry, combinations of metals, called alloys, are generated to meet the specific…
