Powdermet, Inc. announces winning a 2012 NorTech Innovation Award for its technology, MComP™ (Micro/Nanocomposite) hierarchically-structured super metals that offers very high strength-to-weight ratios in magnesium and aluminum alloys.

Powdermet’s MComP™ Technology Receives 2012 NorTech Innovation Award

Euclid, OH | Posted on March 23rd, 2012

The NorTech Award finalists are selected annually by a panel of distinguished academic, technical, investment and business leaders from various organizations throughout Northeast Ohio. Nominees compete for awards in one of five key areas: Advanced Energy; Advanced Materials; Biosciences; Flexible Electronics; and Instrumentation, Controls and Electronics.

MComP™ (Micro/Nanocomposite) hierarchically-structured super metals offer high strength-to-weight materials for light-weighting a wide variety of applications where weight reduction is critical and volumetric properties cannot be sacrificed.

By controlling the microstructure at the nano-scale, Powdermet has developed a line of innovative aluminum and magnesium composites whose properties can be catered to specific applications and is ideal for use in stiffness and/or strength-driven designs and has many of the same benefits of beryllium without the negative health and safety problems.

General Manager, Mr. Brian Doud, accepted this award on behalf of Powdermet at the NorTech Innovation Awards ceremony last night in Westlake, Ohio. "Powdermet is honored to have our breakthrough technology recognized by Northeast Ohio. MComP™ provides the opportunity to change the manufacturing landscape as we know it by replacing steel with lightweight, high strength aluminum or magnesium alloys, in a variety of transportation and infrastructure applications. We'd like to thank NorTech, Crain's Cleveland Business, Kent State University and the judges who see the value in our MComP™ technology and its economic growth potential."
