Innovation. It’s key to our success. And essential for our customers. It’s why we maintain a portfolio of 1500 alloy recipes, whereof over 900 active for further processing into different niche applications. These are protected by ~850 patents, with new patent-protected alloy concepts in constant development.
Not least, we maintain active and close relationships with universities and institutes through common projects and initiatives, either governmentally funded or in bilateral collaborations.
As leading experts in materials technology, we develop materials that are lighter, stronger, more corrosion-resistant, withstand higher temperatures and higher pressures.
Key focus areas include evolutionary upgrades and refinements to the existing materials and processes, such as the development of new super duplex grades and austenitic materials and next-generation compressor valve steel, or through the expansion of the existing portfolio.
From application knowledge to modeling & alloy design to pilot plan to analysis and application testing to scale up & full-scale production, and continued to additional application knowledge.
