Liquidmetal uses a unique Zirconium-based amorphous alloy
Why Liquidmetal Technologies?
Liquidmetal is a unique amorphous alloy material that has recently become commercially available: over twice the tensile strength as Titanium, plus superior corrosion resistance.
Liquidmetal 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 Amorphous Alloy 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
