“ARCONIC-THOR is a breakthrough aerospace material that goes where conventional titanium alloys cannot,” said Jeremy Halford, President, Arconic Engineered Structures. Within Arconic’s patented alloy ranges, ARCONIC-THOR’s specific proprietary formulation demonstrates three times improved oxidation resistance compared to existing high temperature titanium alloys. This improved oxidation resistance protects against deterioration at elevated temperatures and enables ARCONIC-THOR to operate at service temperatures higher than any other conventional titanium alloy available on the market.
As next generation aero engines run hotter, ARCONIC-THOR™ delivers a lighter, more cost-effective titanium alternative to incumbent nickel-based superalloys
- Patented ARCONIC-THOR is nearly 50 percent lighter than incumbent nickel-based superalloys for higher temperature applications in aero engines and adjacent structures—driving cost savings and fuel efficiency for customers
- ARCONIC-THOR offers three times improved oxidation resistance which enables it to operate at service temperatures higher than any other conventional titanium alloy available on the market
- Company has completed successful development projects with commercial aerospace and defense customers, including a U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory project with partners Boeing and Honeywell
