What is alloy?


An alloy is a mixture of a metal element and one or more solid element, which can be either metal or non-metal. The mixture can be of a simple nature or from a solid solution. Combining two or more elements of such, termed "alloying," enhances the material's properties.

It may strengthen the material, such as in the case of the alloy steel as opposed to iron, its pure metal counterpart. Stainless steel, on the other hand, is an alloy that is resistant to corrosion.

Alloys are also known for being durable and lightweight. In automobiles, they are often used on wheels. These wheels are often made up of a sturdy metal and small amounts of aluminum. The end result is a wheel that is anti-corrosive, lightweight, durable and more attractive than steel-plated ones.
