  • Steel contains iron , carbon and others
  • Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc
  • Bronze is combination of copper and tin
  • further these are notifide base on the high percentage of elements found in the base metals. They broadly categorized as carbon steels, nickel chrome steels etc, the Aluminum alloys, copper alloys with various compositions.
An alloy is a mixture of two or more metals. Some familiar examples of alloys include brass, bronze, pewter, cast and wrought iron, steel, coin metal. Alloys are usually synthetic materials, developed by scientists for special purposes. They generally have specially desirable properties quite different from the metals from which they are made. As an example, Wood's metal is a mixture of about 50 percent bismuth, 10 percent cadmium, 13 percent tin, and 27 percent lead that melts at 70°C (160°F).

Some common alloys and what we use them for Alloy Components Brass Copper (65-90%), zinc (10-35%). Bronze Copper (78-95%), tin (5-22%), plus manganese, phosphorus, aluminum, or silicon. Cast iron Iron (96-98%), carbon (2-4%), plus silicon. Cupro-nickel (copper nickel) Copper (75%), nickel (25%), plus small amounts of manganese.
