Exotic Alloys is a term used to describe metal alloys that offer enhanced performance attributes such as strength and durability. They can also display resistance to corrosion and deformation at extreme pressures and temperatures.
Titanium alloys, Nickel-Chromium alloys, Cobalt-Chromium alloys can all be categorised as such. Others may feature Molybdenum or Iridium. They may have trade names such as Inconel or Monel.
Their application is found in many high tech industries such as aerospace, oil and gas, surgery, toolmaking etc.
The alloys can be designed to have specific functionality such as smoothness, accuracy, resistance to fracture and cracks.
Such alloys can require the most narrow distribution width of abrasive particles and highly consistent polishing compounds.
The best quality sharp abrasives can help prevent overheating which may deform some alloys.
