Alloyed metals are used for everything from MRIs in medical facilities to spacecraft. Different elements like chromium, tungsten and nickel are added to steel or aluminium for properties like strength, hardness, and corrosion and wear resistance. The special properties give rise to specialized applications, like the use of nickel alloy steel in medical equipment. Different types of alloys are used in such diverse applications as undersea construction and medical equipment.

Steel alloys have multiple applications
Alloy steels are made by adding fixed amounts of elements like chromium, nickel, and tungsten to enhance certain properties. The amount of alloy added can vary from 1 to 50%. Alloy steels can be magnetic or non-magnetic. Both have a wide range of uses in a number of industr
