Bulk Metallic Glass (BMG), also known as amorphous metal, is a revolutionary class of solid materials characterized by their non-crystalline atomic structure. This unique structure is achieved by rapidly cooling molten metal alloys, preventing the atoms from forming a regular crystalline lattice. Instead, BMGs exhibit a disordered, glass-like arrangement at the atomic level. These materials boast exceptional properties such as extreme strength, often surpassing conventional metals like titanium by up to twice. They also excel in elasticity, toughness, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance, making them highly suitable for diverse applications across industries. BMGs can be cast into near-net shapes with precise microscale details, eliminating the need for extensive secondary finishing processes and resulting in smooth surface finishes.


BMGs have found extensive applications in various fields including industrial coatings, military armor, consumer electronics, medical devices, jewelry, and biomedical implants. Their high strength and hardness make them ideal for protective coatings and armor, while their smooth surface finish and wear resistance enhance their usability in electronics casings, surgical tools, and sporting goods. In jewelry, BMGs' corrosion resistance and ability to be cast into intricate designs offer distinct advantages. Moreover, their biocompatibility and gradual dissolution rate in organisms make them suitable for biomedical implants such as bone screws and plates. The BMG market is poised for significant growth, driven by ongoing research to enhance their properties and expand their applications across different temperature ranges and industrial needs.
