Aerospace & Aviation
The development of nickel and cobalt alloys, titanium and titanium alloys is closely intertwined with the history of modern aerospace. Many of the alloys used in aerospace belong to the group known as super alloys. These alloys combine extreme temperature resistance with strong anticorrosive properties. Most super alloys contain nickel or cobalt as their main constituent. Stability at high temperatures, high creep strength, good fatigue behavior, slow crack propagation, toughness and resistance to high-temperature oxidation comprise the critical properties and features of this group of materials.
