Steel is found in a wide array of industries offering a tremendous variety of uses and benefits. Progress Rail’s UIT offers potential improvements in each of the various forms of steel: carbon, stainless and the more recently developed high strength steels.
With its excellent strength-to-weight ratio, aluminum offers many beneficial characteristics; however, abrasion, corrosion, distortion, fatigue and hardness are all areas in which aluminum may be significantly improved by UIT.
Highly resistant to corrosion from saltwater and possessing excellent conductivity, bronze alloys are extremely important in niche applications. UIT facilitates weld repair of bronze alloys by replacing heat treatment frequently used for stress relief.
Whether grey or ductile, iron offers a cost-effective alternative for a variety of applications. With increased corrosion resistance and toughness, UIT extends the reach of this material.
Highly corrosion resistant and possessing the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal, titanium is used in many industries. Powdered titanium offers manufacturers and designers with additional options and reduces cost. Progress Rail’s UIT extends the reach of this material.
