New aluminium alloys are harder and lighter than alternative

Abstract:
Powdermet Inc has developed new PM alloys which it says have lower weight, higher strength, and increased hardness when compared to aluminium alloys currently on the market.
The alloys are made using a scalable, non-cryomilling based process developed by the company that can produce nanocrystalline powders with a stably, highly refined grain structure that can be consolidated with combined power metallurgy and deformation processing conditions to produce aluminium products with higher strength and hardness. The process does not require reliance on rare-earth or other non-domestic sourced alloying elements.
