Alloy Definition and Examples in Chemistry

What is an Alloy? Alloy Definition and Examples in Chemistry An alloy is a substance made by melting two or more elements together, at least one of them metal. An alloy crystallizes upon cooling into a solid solution, mixture, or intermetallic compound. The components of alloys cannot be separated using a physical means. An alloy [...]

  • The 200 Series of Stainless Steels

The 200 Series Stainless Steels

The 200 Series Stainless Steels The 200 series is a class of austenitic and highly corrosion-resistant stainless steels that are characterized by having low nickel content. They're also referred to as chrome-manganese (CrMn) stainless steel. Austenitic steels include both the 200 and 300 series. They're defined by their face-centered cubic structure. The crystal structure has [...]
