Structural Alloys and Parts

Modumetal has developed a category of nanolaminated, iron-based alloys that well out-perform conventional steel alloys, including Rolled Homogenous Armor (RHA) steels, in strength, impact toughness and hardness, and yet are cost competitive with comparable high-performance steels. Further, Modumetal’s patented additive manufacturing process means that entire, nanolaminated structural parts can be grown in a single production run.

Using nano-layering technology, Modumetal is able to produce an entirely new class of metals and materials that are stronger and lighter, more corrosion resistant and durable than conventional steels and alloys, critical for key structural elements like rebar and sheet metal.

Stronger and more corrosion resistant metals could potentially be used to make bridges and other infrastructure last far longer.


nanolaminated metals
"The Company’s manufacturing process of nanolaminated metals – think metallic plywood with really thin layers – is also a breakthrough, able to deliver materials at a cost that is competitive with conventional alloys.
Modumetal's patented manufacturing approach uses electricity, rather than heat, as its primary energy input, enabling near room temperature operations and unlocking unprecedented materials performance at competitive costs."
