BULK METALLIC GLASS

Materion now offers a variety of zirconium based bulk metallic glass alloys. Also referred to as amorphous glass forming alloys, the Vitreloy product line includes Vit1b, Vit105 and Vit106a. With our expertise in vacuum melting and other processes critical to metallic glass production, we provide the highest quality alloys in commercial quantities.


A HIGH PERFORMANCE ALTERNATIVE TO TITANIUM

BMGs have strength-to-weight ratios more than twice those of titanium, magnesium and aluminum alloys.  Amorphous alloys typically have elastic limits that can be three times higher than crystalline metallic alloys and exhibit outstanding corrosion resistance due to their unique atomic structure and composition.


EASY TO FABRICATE

These amorphous alloys have the additional benefit of near net shape fabrication by injection molding and by a thermoplastic forming process, similar to plastics.
