How Do You Tell the Difference Between Brass and Bronze?

Click to Expand Brass and bronze are two metals often used interchangeably, but they are not the same. Although both are copper alloys, they have different properties and are used for various purposes. Therefore, knowing the difference between these metals is crucial, especially when choosing the right material for a specific project. This article will […]

What Is an Alloy?

Click to Expand An alloy is a substance made up of two or more metals or a metal and a non-metal. It could consist of a single phase (solid solution), a combination of metallic phases (two or more solutions), or an intermetallic complex without a clear phase boundary. Metal alloys are renowned for their power, […]

Guide to Copper Alloy 122: Properties and Applications

The addition of phosphorus to copper alloy 122 makes it an excellent option for heavy-forming processes. In fact, this material is easier to braze and weld than 110 copper, even if they are almost identical mechanically. Also, copper alloy 122 has great resistance to corrosion caused by water, weather, and soil. This makes it an […]
