MARLBOROUGH, MASSACHUSETTS, USA — November 4, 2019 — Xtalic, a leader in providing nano-scale metal alloys and coatings that solve customers’ mission-critical materials problems, has announced its new, patented, NiMo nickel-molybdenum nanostructured alloy for the manufacture of crucial applications that require strength at high temperature.

Xtalic’s new NiMo alloy is ideal for strategic aerospace applications that require superior hardness, strength, and durability while being lighter in weight than traditionally used materials.

“The benefits of NiMo alloy range from major improvements in key material properties, to greater design and manufacturing options, to innumerable possibilities in application and customizability,” said Tom Clay, Xtalic’s chief executive officer.

Compared to nickel and more exotic materials, NiMo alloy delivers thermal stability to elevated temperatures of at least 816°C (1500°F) for longer-life at higher operating temperatures. NiMo-coated components produced through additive manufacturing will feature improved strength, reduced weight, and increased efficiency and performance.

Moreover, Xtalic can work with designers to tailor NiMo properties to meet the specific challenges of virtually any application — in aerospace or other industries — by utilizing its Dynamic Nanostructure Control® and patented Rapid Alloy Design toolkits.
