Transmet Corporation is a manufacturer and supplier of rapidly solidified metal flakes, shot media and particles. These products are made by quenching molten metal at rates up to one million degrees Celsius per second.

As R&D project for an outside company, Transmet rapidly solidified 100-lbs of particulates from of each of the following aluminum alloys listed below. The rapid solidification casting was done on our pilot line in Columbus, Ohio USA.

  • 7075 Aluminum
  • 2219 Aluminum
  • 6061 Aluminum
  • 30% silicon, balance aluminum

These materials were produced for a customer for their proprietary lab testing. All of the flake and ribbon alloys do have nano-sized grain structures.

Transmet Corporation specializes in rapid solidification technology. To learn more visit our website development page at https://transmet.com/development/research-development/ . Contact Transmet if you have needs for rapidly solidified aluminum particles.
