Alloy AdditionsDifferent levels of copper and tin can affect annealed properties and result in reduced strength and hardness, increased elongation and generally eliminate the variations in as-cast properties produced by the different alloy levels. Fracture toughness can be affected by the choice of standard and subcritical annealing as well.
