Liquidmetal® Injection Molding
Liquidmetal® Injection Molding process uses a unique U.S. manufactured Zirconium-based alloy
New technology and material that has just become commercially available: Over twice the tensile strength as Titanium, plus superior corrosion resistance
Liquidmetal® Injection Molding (aka amorphous metal casting) is capable of manufacturing ultra-hard, high-strength complex geometries in mid to high volume quantities. This process uses a U.S. manufactured Zirconium-based alloy that has unique and impressive mechanical properties.
Liquidmetal® alloy parts have over twice the tensile strength as titanium, superior corrosion resistance to stainless steel, hardness equivalent of heat-treated tool steels, and an incomparable elastic strain limit of 2%. This is a new technology that has just become commercially available. Unlike other metal forming, casting, or sintering processes, Liquidmetal® alloy parts come out of the mold in a useable state, with surfaces that can have a mirror/polished finish, and require little to no finishing or machining processes.
Liquidmetal® Injection Molding offers:
- An alloy stronger than stainless steel
- Superior strength-to-weight ratio over magnesium or aluminum
- Hard as tool steel alloys
- Greater elasticity than any other alloy
- Unique, polished surface finishes as cast.
