Breakthrough with 3D printed stainless steel

“Marine grade” stainless steel is valued for its performance under corrosive environments and for its high ductility — the ability to bend without breaking under stress — making it a preferred choice for oil pipelines, welding, kitchen utensils, chemical equipment, medical implants, engine parts and nuclear waste storage. However, conventional techniques for strengthening this class […]

3D printing doubles the strength of stainless steel

3D printing has taken the world by storm, but it currently works best with plastic and porous steel—materials too weak for hard-core applications. Now, researchers have come up with a way to 3D print tough and flexible stainless steel, an advance that could lead to faster and cheaper ways to make everything from rocket engines […]

Boron Powder And Its Widespread Use Nowadays

Boron as a compound component has qualities of the two nonmetals and metals. This is the motivation behind why it is called metalloid too. Boron is to a great degree elusive in its unadulterated shape in nature in light of the fact that generally it is joined with different components, ordinarily with oxygen.
