Your Partner for Custom Alloys

We’re satisfying demand for novel compositions by offering you custom alloying as part of our technical solutions portfolio.

We’re now able to offer custom alloys – including High-Entropy Alloys – to meet your specific application requirements. 

Goodfellow’s custom alloying solutions allow greater flexibility over: 

  • Alloy composition 
  • Particle size and distribution
  • Batch quantity  

Patented Technology for Unbeatable Results 

Using patented ultrasonic technology, we’re able to produce state-of-the-art alloy powders characterized by high sphericity (≤ 0.98) and narrow particle size distribution. These characteristics result in fantastically flowable powders for Additive Manufacturing and other powder metallurgy processes.

Save Money with Small Batch Options 

Fed up with huge minimum order quantities eating into your budget?

Goodfellow’s custom alloy powders are available in batches as small as 100g. No need for kilograms of surplus product. No need for unnecessary spending. More budget left for what matters – innovation.

Paving the Way for Innovation  

Research into novel alloying has skyrocketed in recent decades. One of the most prominent developments within this space is the discovery of High-Entropy Alloys. Also known as Multicomponent Alloys, High-Entropy Alloys are alloys formed by mixing equal or relatively large proportions of five or more elements.

In comparison to conventional alloys, High-Entropy Alloys boast superior properties that make them one to watch for future materials innovations.

The exceptional characteristics of High-Entropy Alloys include: 

  • Great strength and hardness
  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • Good thermal stability
  • Excellent fatigue, fracture, and irradiation resistance
  • Good ductility, wear resistance, and magnetic properties

The durability of High-Entropy Alloys makes them a stand-out choice for developments across multiple industries, including Aerospace, Automotive, and Biomedical.

Custom Alloying - Power Your Next Breakthrough

The possibilities for innovation within materials design are endless. Whether you’re exploring conventional alloying or looking to harness the power of High-Entropy Alloys, Goodfellow’s custom alloying solutions can support your efforts.  

Need something less specific? We’ve got you covered.
