Alloy Copper Nickel 90/10 is a completely different category of alloy. As the name suggests, it constitutes of 90% of copper as its base element and 10% nickel. Though some may argue it as a double-phase alloy, it is single-phase because nickel becomes soluble in copper.
Some proportion of iron might be added in the grade to enhance general corrosion resistance, erosion resistance, and resistance to corrosion from water at uneven pressure and turbulent flow. Sometimes even manganese is added for improving strength and corrosion resistance.
