New Metal to Replace Steel – MetalliGlass TM
Stronger than Steel – Lighter than Aluminum
PRLog (Press Release) – Sep 20, 2010 –
Mankind has lived through the Copper Age, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age and is now ending the Steel Age. There is a new, better metal to replace Steel in all of its variants; MetalliGlass. MetalliGlass is composed of two elements: Tungsten and Silicon. Silicon is something we all know well as glass, which is quite heavy. Tungsten is even heavier weighing about the same as Gold. Both are plentiful.
In the summary, I claim that MetalliGlass is stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum. How can an alloy of these two metals be lighter than aluminum? In the smelting process, significant levels of gases are released; one can be used as a refrigerant as it resists cooling and absorbs more heat. When the new TungSteel alloy cools, it forms a cubic crystal grid that is light-weight and very strong.
Please suspend disbelief. Think about what can be done with this new metal. Imagine building concrete structures that will endure for hundreds or thousands of years using MetalliGlass instead of iron for Re-Bar. How about ship hulls and propellers that do not rust or corrode. How about car bodies or airplane bodies? Almost any thing made of Aluminum can be replaced with MetalliGlass. Iron and Steel will continue to be used with magnetics as MetalliGlass, like aluminum, copper and nickel are not magnetizable. How about nuts, bolts and screws of all kinds and sizes – no rust and no corrosion!!! Also, like nickel, TungSteel does not conduct electricity and can be used as an excellent insulator. As MetalliGlass is composed, mostly from Silicon, it has most of the properties of glass, but can be hammered, bent, extruded (wire) and molded . By adding other materials, MetalliGlass, like glass can be transparent.
