Low friction with graphene oxide composites
Graphene oxide silica composites with good friction and wear performance were developed and used for the first time in steel-steel contacts. These composites provided up to 50% lower friction when used as lubricant additives.
FINAL REPORT: DEMAPP ”Breakthrough Materials for Demanding Applications – from Science to Solutions”
FIMECC DEMAPP (2009–2014) is an industry-led public-private partnership programme (PPP) focusing on application-driven R&D of advanced materials for extreme service conditions. Through a true multi-disciplinary co-operation between the consortium and with key international partners FIMECC DEMAPP has provided a variety of great scientific results which have been rapidly...
Novel corrosion resistant stainless steel without nickel
High-chromium ferritic stainless steels with good corrosion resistance and formability have been developed for demanding applications. Independent of the high and fluctuating price of nickel these novel ferritic steels provide cost-efficient alternative to current austenitic grades. Based on wide research and pilot-scale development the first 21% chromium grade have been...
Excellent Thermal Conductivity Of Aluminium Castings
A FIMECC research project by Aalto University and Alteams Oy has achieved a more than 50 percent improvement in the thermal conductivity of aluminium casting alloy. The result is significant as electronic components are becoming more powerful and produce excess heat which has to be removed from the apparatus. Improvement in heat transfer guarantees also longer life time and...
Raex wear-resistant and ultra-high-strength steels
Key enablers for a complete family of new wear-resistant and ultra-high-strength steels were developed. Utilizing Ruukki’s own direct quenching technology the new steels bring energy efficient, light solutions for transportation as well as safety and new performance for harsh crushing and mining applications.
