Properties of New NASA High-Temp. Superalloy for AM Use Verified via 3D SystemsMay 4, 2023
3D Systems announced that it has verified the properties for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA’s) new laser powder-bed fusion superalloy, GRX-810. The oxide dispersion-strengthened alloy, developed by NASA, reportedly demonstrates exceptional mechanical properties and resistance to extreme temperatures, making it ideal for aerospace applications. GRX-810, through its oxide dispersion-strengthening mechanism, can offer an unparalleled combination of strength, ductility, creep life and heat resistance. These properties make the alloy an ideal candidate for future use in critical components such as rocket engines, turbine blades, and exhaust-nozzle components.
Working with material provided by NASA, 3D Systems processed and tested the elevated-temperature mechanical properties of GRX-810 using its Direct Metal Printing platform.
"The successful verification of the reported NASA GRX-810 properties is a testament to the incredible potential of this new superalloy, not only in its performance but in its capability to be produced repeatably," says Dr. Michael Shepard, vice president of 3D Systems’ aerospace and defense segment. "Our work with this material provided by NASA underscores our commitment to pushing the boundaries of additive manufacturing (AM) and enabling the production of next-generation aerospace components.”
