Material Properties of Amorphous Alloys

Amorphous metals, also known as metallic glasses, offer unique properties that make them suitable for a variety of high-tech applications. Their excellent mechanical properties, high corrosion resistance, biocompatibility, and isotropic behavior allow for versatile applications. They exhibit high strength, excellent elasticity, surface quality, hardness, and low abrasion. Additionally, they demonstrate high magnetic permeability, ease of magnetization and demagnetization, as well as high corrosion resistance and biocompatibility in medical and chemical environments.
