The most comprehensive and authoritative single-volume reference on nonferrous metals and alloys. Provides detailed information on major alloy groups, with particular emphasis on aluminum, titanium, copper, and magnesium. New topics include recycling, superconductors, metal-matrix composites, and intermetallics.

1,800 illustrations, 1,200 tables.

Sections include: Specific Metals and Alloys, Special-Purpose Alloys, Superconducting Materials, Pure Metals, Recycling, and Toxicity of Metals.

This is the second of two volumes in the ASM Handbook that present information on compositions, properties, selection, and applications of metals and alloys. In Volume 1, irons, steels, and superalloys are described. In the volume, nonferrous alloys, superconducting materials, pure metals, and materials developed for use in special applications are reviewed. These companion volumes document some of the more important changes and developments that have taken place in materials science during recent decades—changes that undoubtedly will continue to impact materials engineering into the 21st century.
