The defence sector needs reliable, high-performance materials that can withstand extreme conditions in operation. VBN can improve the combat capability with extremely wear- and heat-resistant materials that are easily shaped with additive manufacturing, a production method that also makes it easy to create durable but light-weight structures.
Vibenite® materials have very good fatigue resistance and are extremely clean. Within their microstructure you will find very fine and well-dispersed carbides that give the materials a uniform hardness. Vibenite® is suitable for engine and vehicle components as well as armour and other applications with specific requirements when it comes to wear, heat, fatigue, or complex geometries.
