The first book of its kind lets you have quick access to authoritative, how-to heat treating information for the most widely-used nonferrous alloys. Provides quick access to recommended heat treating information for hundreds of nonferrous alloys. Additional information on compositions, trade names, common names, specifications, available product forms, typical applications, and properties are included when available. A glossary of terms that has been cross-referenced to the alloys is also included. 500 datasheet articles are arranged by alloy groups, each devoted to one particular alloy. Alloy groups covered in this format are nickel-base, cobalt-base, and iron-base superalloys; nickels; wrought aluminum and aluminum alloys; Al-Li alloys; wrought copper and copper alloys; copper casting alloys; wrought and cast magnesium alloys; titanium alloys; and conventional die casting zinc alloys and zinc-aluminum casting alloys.
Articles are provided on heat treating for other nonferrous alloys such as Al powder metallurgy alloys; beryllium copper alloys; sintering copper-base materials; cast and P/M titanium; lead and lead alloys; refractory metals; and tin rich alloys.
Perfect companion piece to Practices And Procedures For Irons And Steels.
