Electrodeposited nickel is ideal here for its ductility, high strength-to-weight, corrosion resistance and fabricability
," says Paul Hazlitt, chief engineer at Servometer.
Properties include low density, low neutron capture cross section, high strength at elevated temperatures, good fabricability
, and low rate of neutron embrittlement.
Advantages such as durability, fabricability
, ease of disposal and the absence of plasticizers are said to make these TPUs increasingly popular for high-performance products such as critical "can't fail" medical situations, according to the literature.
Scandium containing aluminum alloys offer increased strength, fabricability
, plasticity, and fatigue resistivity.
