The compositions, structure and glass-forming ability of bulk glassy alloys are discussed. The noble metal base Pd-Ni-P and Pt-Ni-P alloys have low critical cooling rates of the order 103 K/s and bulk glassy alloys are formed in a diameter range up to 2 mm by quenching of the melt without flux treatment. By choosing new alloy compositions, bulk glassy alloys can be produced by various simple processes such as water quenching, arc melting on water cooled copper hearth and conventional copper mold casting.
