Microprobe Measurements to Determine Phase Boundaries and Diffusion Paths in Ternary Phase Diagrams Taking a Cu-Ni-Al System as an Example
The alloy CuNi5A15, with iron and manganese as additives, is a coin material with high resistance to corrosion and tarnish. This material is also distinguished by its golden colour1, and is particularly suitable for coins with a high nominal value.
