Analysis reveals new crystal structure in "gum metal"
A phase transition observed for the first time in a titanium alloy could pave the way for new structural materialsScientists from the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (MPIE) in Düsseldorf have observed a new phase transformation in a titanium alloy at DESY. The mechanism they discovered could further our understanding of some surprising properties of certain alloys and be used to develop new materials. [...]

New mechanism reveals the secrets of a Ti alloy transformation
A new phase transformation mechanism has been described for a variation of the gum metal, an oxygen-free, β-titanium (Ti) alloy, with niobium (Nb), tantalum (Ta), and zirconium (Zr) as alloying elements. The scientists behind the discovery believe that their findings will serve as a guide for future developments of new and improved varieties of Ti-alloys. [...]

Gum metals pave the way for new applications
Metals which can be bent as gum pave the way for new industrial applications for example in the aerospace industry. These so-called gum metals exist but the mechanism behind this behaviour was still unsettled and thus difficult to be used for applications. [...]
