Amorphous light weight materials made of Titanium are twice as strong as the usual crystallineTitanium-based compositions and therefore excellently qualified for the use of components in the space- and aircraft industry. High stability and strength by saving weight are key-requirements in this market field.
Lifestyle products are evoking an emotional connection to its consumers. High quality surface finish, haptic and scratch resistance are material requirements for lifestyle products, which are searched for. In addtion amorphous metals offer high storage capacity for elastic properties and shock absorbance.
The thermo-plastic forming behavior of amorphous metals is another big advantage the material class can offer, if it comes to mechanical connection with other metallic or ceramic or even plastic components. When it comes to processing amorphous metals the absence of phase transition from liquid to solid is an advantage. This leads to the avoidance of high shrinkage which in turn enables the manufacturing of net-shape-products.
