Amorphous Metals for Next Generation High-Tech Applications.

Since there are no lattice structures in amorphous metals, grain and phase boundaries do not form. The material has excellent mechanical properties, above-average corrosion resistance, biocompatibility and isotropic behavior. For this reason, metallic glasses, as amorphous metals are also known, are ideal for a wide range of high-tech applications and offer properties in unique combinations not found in conventional materials. Especially in the market segments lifesytle, robotics & mechanics, medical technology, sensor applications or aerospace, amorphous alloys can create great added value and be the solution for previously unrealizable challenges.  Learn more about Amorphous Metals
