A survey of the markets for rapidly solidified, high strength aluminum alloys has been made by Charles River Associates1 on the basis of currently available technologies. This survey includes an assessment of potentially new developments, Advanced powder metallurgy technologies possess a visible market potential primarily in applications requiring high strength, heat treatable alloys of modified 7075 composition (currently alloys 7090 and 7091) and lithium bearing 2XXX series.
