They are used for springs and corrosion-resistant hardware. Costume jewelry is often made from nickel silver because of its pleasant silvery color. Beryllium Copper either copper-based alloys or combinations of two copper-based alloys. Constantan (45% Ni) has a nearly zero-temperature coefficient of resistivity, hence is useful in instruments. 8% Ni þ Co are precipitation-hardenable.

Since aluminum comprises 8% of the Earth’s crust by weight, the overall reserves are adequate to cope with anticipated demands for the foreseeable future. Cost differentials with respect to competing materials will probably dictate the extent to which aluminum will be used. The cost includes the price of the electrical energy needed for the extraction of the metal from its minerals, and this may be greatly reduced in the future since aluminum can be recycled for many applications. In addition, aluminum often pays off when lifecycle costs, instead of acquisition costs, are considered.
