In the automotive industry, the search is always on for materials that are lighter, cheaper, stronger, and can last longer while maintaining its efficiency. In those terms, Flash Bainite could be revolutionary in what it has to offer.
Flash Bainite – The Numbers
In terms of strength, Flash Bainite is stronger than titanium weight wise. It is also ductile to a point where it can be pressed into shape without cracking. Flash Bainite is a material that is up to 30 to 50 percent lighter and also cheaper than steel.
Strength wise Flash Bainite is capable of providing 7 percent higher specific strength compared to martensitic steel. What this means is that any product that currently uses martensitic steel can be replaced with Flash Bainite and deliver exceptional results while lasting longer.
Initial data recorded by carrying out tests using the Flash Bainite showed that mass production and expenses can be reduced by up to [...]
