In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- Silver is much softer than brass if it is not alloyed with copper, tin, or some other less costly metal.
- Others soon followed, industrializing it and sinking shafts to deposits of iron and other metals that could be alloyed to make tools for the Federation war machine.
- Depleted uranium alloyed with a small amount of titanium is even harder.
- Aluminum is melted and alloyed, and liquid droplets are sprayed or dropped against a chilled surface of high thermal conductivity - for example, a copper wheel that is water cooled internally.
- A deep scratch exposing the alloyed metal can eventually cause measurable harm and be expensive to repair.
- Palladium is generally alloyed with other precious metals, such as gold and silver, as well as with copper.
- They showed that the copper and zinc alloyed to make the brass were of higher purity than would have been available in the 16th century.

- Gold is also alloyed with other metals to create different colors of gold.
- Lead alloyed with tin, bismuth, cadmium, indium, or other elements, either alone or in combination, forms alloys with particularly low melting points.
- Tin is structurally a weak metal, and when used in bearing applications it is alloyed with copper and antimony for increased hardness, tensile strength and fatigue resistance.
- When properly alloyed and hardened by heat-treating, this tendency is greatly reduced.
- As is the case with steel, titanium is alloyed with other metals to increase its strength.
- Each kimchi fridge uses up to 7 kilograms of aluminium alloyed with manganese and tin - four to five times that of the traditional fridge.
- In the last decade of the eighteenth century jewelers perfected methods of alloying gold with various mixtures of copper, zinc, silver, or nickel to create a palette of gold colors to enrich their designs.
- Iron alloyed with carbon is steel and this steel can be alloyed with a variety of ferro alloys to modify its properties.
- It is such a soft and pliable metal that it needs to be alloyed with other metals, into brass or bronze, before it can be used for a structural purpose.
- The metal must always be alloyed if it is to be fabricated or worked to make some useful product.
- The new irons formed by alloying or by special melting and casting methods are becoming competitors to steel.
- To be effective in modification, antimony must be alloyed to approximately 0.06%.
