Alloys and super alloys


Normal alloy steels have various elements added in small quantities to improve some of their features, as for example strength, hardenability, temperature and corrosion resistance.

Some extreme application call for very special alloys, derived from the most advanced aerospace and military development programs, for such application there are special super alloys; they offer greatly enhanced performance properties, including excellent strength and durability, resistance to oxidation, corrosion and deformation, at high temperature or under pressure.

Due to these unusual properties, super alloys make the best spring materials for ultra-demanding working condition, including extreme high or low temperatures, under great pressure, and exposed to outdoor conditions, including extreme weather.
