PLM's material program covers alloys und metal-matrix-compounds (MMC's) based on aluminum for applications in extended temperature and strength ranges (application temperatures up to 500 °C and strength levels up to 800 MPa at room temperature). Furthermore, there are alloys available showing improved wear and/or corrosion resistance or others showing excellent fatigue strength and/or fracture toughness. For some compositions Young's Modulus is exceeding a level of 100 GPa.
highest strength at room temperature
high fracture toughness
wear resistant alloys, high stiffness
high strength at elevated temperatures, improved fatigue strength
controlled thermal expansion (CTE), low CTE's possible
corrosion and creep resistant alloys
highest Young's Modulus, wear resistant
