This 3-volume set includes

  • 4,700 binary alloy phase diagrams and totals 3,589 pages.
  • Atomic/weight % compositions, solubilities, stable/metastable phases, discrepancies in reported values, uncertainties in experimental/calculated data
  • Thermodynamics of pure elements
  • Nomenclature, composition, Pearson symbol, space group, Strukturbericht designation, prototype
  • Primary references, additional related citations
  • Complete list/sources of phase diagram information for all metal-metal/nonmetal-metal alloys included in the Second Edition


Introduced in 1990, the revised 'Massalski' set has become the world standard. Completely replacing Hansen's original compilation by updating the data and expanding coverage to include all 2,965 known binary-alloy systems. 2,565 systems were critically evaluated under the ASM/NIST Data Program for Alloy Phase Diagrams; diagrams and data for the remaining 400 systems were selected as the best available. Reliability of all diagrams and data presented, however, has been insured by adherence to strict quality standards throughout preparation. For the convenience of engineers and scientists, both weight and atomic percent composition scales are presented in over 4,700 phase diagrams. To insure accuracy and consistency, the diagrams were prepared by computer technology and then double-checked by experts. Digitized from original Program graphs or redrawn from carefully selected data sources, each diagram is in accordance with established thermodynamic principles and consistent with melting and phase-transition temperatures of the pure elements.
