alloy

 [al´oi]
a solid mixture of two or more metals, or of one or more metals and certain metalloids, that are mutually soluble in the molten condition.

al·loy

(al'oy),
A combination of metals formed when they are miscible in the liquid state.

alloy

[al′oi]
Etymology: Fr, aloyer, to combine metals
a mixture of two or more metals or of substances with metallic properties. Most alloys are formed by mixing molten metals that dissolve in each other. A number of alloys have medical applications, such as those used for prostheses and in dental amalgams.

alloy

A substance having metallic properties and being composed of two or more chemical elements, at least one of which is a metal.

al·loy

(al'oy)
A substance composed of a mixture of two or more metals.

al·loy

(al'oy)
A combination of metals formed when they are miscible in the liquid state.

alloy (al´oi),

n 1. a solution composed of two metals dissolved in each other when in the liquid state.
n 2. the product of the fusion of two or more metals.
alloy, amalgam
n the alloy or product of the fusion of several metals, usually supplied as filings, that is mixed with mercury to produce dental amalgam. Colloquial term is silver fillings.
alloy, cobalt-chromium,
n (chrome-cobalt amalgam), a base metal alloy. Used in dentistry for metallic denture bases and partial dentures.
alloy, dental amalgam,
n See amalgam.
alloy, dental gold,
n an alloy in which the principal ingredient is gold.
alloy, eutectic,
n any combination of metals the melting point of which is lower than that of any of the individual metals of which it consists. An alloy in which the components are mutually soluble in the solid state. A eutectic alloy has a nonhomogeneous grain structure and is therefore likely to be brittle and subject to tarnishing and corrosion.
alloy, nickel-chromium,
n a stainless steel.
