TSU will increase the strength of aluminum alloys by 30%
Vladimir Valikhov, a staff member of the Laboratory of High-Energy and Special Materials, is creating master alloys based on basalt. The introduction of these alloys into aluminum will increase the strength of the metal by 30%. The project will be completed by 2021, and the resulting alloy can be used to create aircraft, helicopters, and cars.
Master alloys are introduced into the base metal for uniform distribution of reinforcing particles or fibers throughout the volume and improve the physical and mechanical characteristics of the resulting material.
