ALLOY materials having metallic properties and consisting of two or more chemical elements, of which at least one is a metal. Many metal alloys have a single metal as the basis with small additives of other elements. The most common method of producing alloys - solidification of the homogeneous molten mixture of their components. There are other methods of production - for example, powder metallurgy. In principle, the clear distinction between metals and alloys are difficult to make, as even in the purest metals are of trace impurities of other elements. However, usually under the metal alloys understand the materials produced purposefully adding to the base metal of the other components. Almost all of the metals having commercial value, used in alloys
