Abstract : Twenty-six solutions capable of electrodepositing alloys were prepared, electroreduced, and the products examined for uniformity, control of alloy ingredient, and solution stability. In the second phase three solutions were selected from the screening test. Limited experiments were conducted with a nickel manganese alloy, while more extensive experiments were performed with a Co-W and a Co-W-Ni solution. In the third phase the latter two were adapted and improved to function as true electroforming solutions. Test specimens of a cobalt-nickel-tungsten alloy were prepared and tested to obtain tensile strength and hardness data.
