The integrity of any project requiring metal work lies on the integrity of the material used. There is a reason super alloys are named “super.” Their strength and stability make them ideal for particular products and alloy castings. If you are looking to create strong and high performing castings for your next industrial project, super alloys may be an option. Read why they are continuously growing in popularity:
What are Super Alloys?
Super alloys – also known as high-performance alloys – are alloys that offer paramount strength. They do not only have great mechanical strength. But, they are able to withstand high temperatures without deforming. And, super alloys are made even stronger every year. New chemical processes raise the temperature limit for different super alloys.
When Would I Use Super Alloys?
Super alloys have become more available in recent years. So, this has made them more popular. And, new super alloys are always under development to create stronger alloy castings. When a piece of metalwork needs to maintain strength while reaching high temperatures, a developer may want to use super alloys.
The aerospace and marine industries use super alloys for turbine engines. And, over the years, the heat resistance of super alloys has been growing. However, super alloys can be susceptible to environmental factors. Thermal fatigue, hot corrosion, and oxidation – all of which can weaken chemical bonds – may affect surfaces of certain super alloys. But, protective materials cam coat super alloys to prevent such issues from occurring.
