New Metal to Replace Steel – MetalliGlass TM

Stronger than Steel – Lighter than Aluminum

MetalliGlass TM is composed of Tungsten and Silicon using a new process. MetalliGlass does not rust; does not corrode in salt or fresh water; does not corrode in air; does not dissolve in most acids. Again, stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum.

PRLog (Press Release) – Sep 20, 2010 –
Mankind has lived through the Copper Age, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age and is now ending the Steel Age.  There is a new, better metal to replace Steel in all of its variants; MetalliGlass.  MetalliGlass is composed of two elements: Tungsten and Silicon.  Silicon is something we all know well as glass, which is quite heavy.  Tungsten is even heavier weighing about the same as Gold.  Both are plentiful.

In the summary, I claim that MetalliGlass is stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum.  How can an alloy of these two metals be lighter than aluminum? In the smelting process, significant levels of gases are released; one can be used as a refrigerant as it resists cooling and absorbs more heat.  When the new TungSteel alloy cools, it forms a cubic crystal grid that is light-weight and very strong.

Please suspend disbelief.  Think about what can be done with this new metal. Imagine building concrete structures that will endure for hundreds or thousands of years using MetalliGlass instead of iron for Re-Bar.  How about ship hulls and propellers that do not rust or corrode.  How about car bodies or airplane bodies? Almost any  thing made of Aluminum can be replaced with MetalliGlass.  Iron and  Steel will continue to be used with magnetics as MetalliGlass, like aluminum,  copper and nickel are not magnetizable.  How about nuts, bolts and screws of all kinds and sizes – no rust and no corrosion!!!  Also, like nickel, TungSteel does not conduct electricity and can be used as an excellent insulator.  As MetalliGlass is composed, mostly from Silicon, it has most of the properties of glass, but can be hammered, bent, extruded (wire) and molded .  By adding other materials, MetalliGlass, like glass can be transparent.

    Could this be the alleged Flexible Glass that was lost when Emperor Tiberius Caesar ordered its inventor to be decapitated?

      What a wonderful question? Never heard of Flexible Glass before. No, this is a
      new, transparent metal that can be molded, bent, drawn into wire, welded, filed.
      Glass is too brittle; this metal will provide thin, light-weight “glass” windows
      that do not break,even with a bullet or bomb fragments. Flexible Glass is a kind
      of “rubberized”glass that can be hand-molded or pressed into different shapes.
      Yes, it is not brittle, but it also does not have the strength of the Metalliglass
      alloy. Not sure why, but I can make Flexible Glass as well. That would keep a lot
      of glasses from breaking; they would bend a bit instead.

    When you claim it to be “lighter than aluminum”, are you implying a cubic foot of it would be lighter than a cubic foot of steel? I ask because I’m curious about its density.

    • Merln says:

      Hi Kevin, Yes, it is less dense, but stronger. Think carbon fiber. Even though it is made/composed of Tungsten and Sand, two very heavy ingredients, there is a huge amount of gas loss in the smelting. Many of these gases will be useful in their own right. The resulting alloy is lighter than aluminum, by a bit. It is also stronger than steel in tensel strength. Oh, it does not rust or corrode in fresh/salt water. This alloy is ideal for boat/ship hulls, anchors/chain, masts/booms/stantions/shrouds (stays)/rudders. Oh yes, for all kinds of airplanes.
      This alloy can be bent, filed, drawn (into wire), rolled, molded, welded, and just about anything that can be done with aluminum or steel.

        What about army vehicles, namely Tanks?

        • Merln says:

          Hi Kevin,

          Yes, of course. It is lighter/liter than aluminum and stronger than steel, but it is also much less dense than normal steel. Here’s a new idea; can we use a technique to “harden” steel or any other metal? Say we want to strengthen gold so we can wear 22 or 24 carets and not worry about the clasp or chain breaking. The same applies to copper, aluminum, or steel; any metal can be “hardened.” Any tank, aircraft, or ship can be made harder to kill using these techniques. Think bridges and rebar as well.
