Alloys

ALLOY DATABASEUse the alloy database to create your alloy.

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES•Malleable and Ductile:Free moving electrons relocate but the bonding remains unbroken •Electrical conductors:Electrons can carry current •Heat conductors:Electrons rapidly transfer heat

ALLOYS

CORROSION PROTECTION Alloys such as stainless steel can resists rusting. It is used for surgical apparatus, body piercing and equipment in conduction of high heat and salt, such as in kitchens and on boats. Other types of steel can be protected by coatings, such as oils, paint or plastic that stops air and water from reaching the surface. A scratch or crack in the coating, however allows rusting to start again. This is called SACRIFICIAL PROTECTION

TASK: Create your own AlloyConstruct a research summary page advertising your alloy to international manufacturers Consider the following:-- Physical Properties- Resistance to changing environment- Industrial Use- Justification and evaluation on chosen base metal and additive element.

QUICK QUESTIONS1.Define the term alloy and provide examples. 2.Define the term base metal and solute3. Alloys have advantages over their parent metals. Use an example to clarify this statement.4.Predict whether metals would be good or poor electrical conductors if they had a tight hold on their outer-shell electrons.

TITANIUM ALLOY

IRON ALLOY

NICKEL ALLOY

COPPER ALLOY

An alloy is a substance made by melting two or more elements together, at least one of them a metal. An alloy crystallizes upon cooling into a solid solution, mixture, or intermetallic compound.Examples of alloys include brass, bronze, 14k gold, and sterling silver.
