Oxidation- and Creep-Resistant QuesTalloy™- Nb
In 2009 we began a U.S. Department of Energy-funded SBIR Phase I project to apply our Materials by Design methodology 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
Some material is available for testing, evaluation or use; please contact us if you are interested. We’re always interested in speaking with potential licensees and with major end-users/OEMs about material needs and industry developments. Please contact us if you would like to talk about your application.
