We are applying our Materials by Design® computational, physics-based ICME approach and technology to rapidly invent, design and develop superior niobium-based alloys for wide-ranging service, such as:
Oxidation- and Creep-Resistant Niobium-based Alloy
In 2009 we began a U.S. Department of Energy-funded SBIR Phase I project to design and develop oxidation- and creep-resistant niobium-based superalloy for use in the hottest part (i.e. the first blade stages) of next generation, high-temperature power-generating turbines. Increasing firing temperatures can increase the efficiency and reduce the emissions of next-generation power plants.
Material and Licensing Availability
No material is currently available for testing, evaluation or use; please do not contact us at this time to request samples of this developmental alloy. We’re always interested in speaking with potential licensees and with major end-users/OEMs about material needs and industry developments.
