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)

Without dynamic loading, the level of the initial POF adhesion of the Cu-Zn-Co ternary alloy coating in a cobalt-free compound is about 10% lower than the reference system, whereas the initial APR adhesion of the different coatings in both compounds is similar and very good.
Also here, the Cu-Zn-Co ternary alloy coating in the cobalt-free compound is the best performing combination.
In this study, it has been shown that a Cu-Zn-Co ternary alloy coating, in combination with cobalt-free skim compounds, leads to several advantages:
THE INFLUENCE OF MANGANESE ON KINETICS OF AUSTENITIZATION OF THE Fe-Mn-C TERNARY ALLOYS
The influence of manganese on the microstructure and kinetics of the austenization in the Fe-Mn-C ternary alloys, which contains four grades of Mn concentration, is studied under continuous heating.
It should however be remarked that special treatments and ternary alloys such as Ni-Ti-Cu can yield much higher values of maximum strains and stresses.
