An amorphous metal alloy for producing highly complex parts via an efficient injection-molding process exceeds the strength of its titanium counterparts. The alloy undergoes virtually no shrinkage as it cools, resulting in a finished part that requires little, if any, machining. Additionally, it delivers repeatable molded features within +0.002 in., and has an ultralow shrinkage rate of approximately 0.2%. Finished parts are highly elastic, corrosion resistant, and offer an “as-molded” textured or mirrored finish that’s harder than steel.
