SHAPING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

With over 130 years of specialty alloy product and process innovation, Carpenter Technology is a leader in each of the markets that we serve. We offer more than 500 different specialized alloys, including nickel, cobalt and titanium-based alloys, stainless steels and soft magnetic materials. In many cases, we are the sole provider of these materials worldwide.


Our product portfolio and innovative approach enables our customer to solve their greatest material challenges and meet their sustainability goals. With our stronger, lighter, and more durable materials, our customers can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption and overall material needs.

Our Custom 465® Stainless steel alloy has up to 50% higher strength versus other commonly used stainless steels, enabling the design of lighter-weight parts for improved fuel efficiency. In addition, Custom 465® Stainless can replace alloy steels that require environmentally hazardous coating and plating processes applied to common alloy steels for corrosion protection, such as 4340 or 4330+V, enabling airframe supply chains to forgo such coatings.

Medical

Our solutions for medical markets play an important role as our customers seek to improve patient outcomes and the confidence of healthcare providers. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that up to 20% of joint replacement patients suffer from nickel hypersensitivity, leaving them at risk of allergic reactions following surgical procedures. We help to potentially reduce the risk through our low-nickel alloys, specifically designed for surgical designed for surgical implants. Our Biodur® 108 alloy provides higher strength and exceptional durability while being essentially nickel- and cobalt-free.

Energy

We are committed to enhancing product performance in renewable energy. Our soft magnetic alloys, such as Hiperco® 50 alloys can improve efficiency in wind turbines by up to 15% by getting more power from existing turbines or enabling the use of smaller generators to achieve the same power output. Our advanced bearing and gear alloys improve the reliability of wind turbines and reduce the risk of gearbox failures the leading cause of premature turbine retirement.

Transportation

Our soft magnetic alloys are helping to advance the electrification of the transportation industry, from cars and trucks to electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles (eVTOL). Hiperco® 50 alloys, used in power-dense motors, can reduce the size and weight of electric motors and generators by up to 30%, increasing vehicle energy efficiency.

Industrial & Consumer

Many of our alloys are utilized in tools and machines in use throughout these industries. With special properties like corrosion-, wear- and heat-resistance, tools made with our alloys last longer, run more efficiently and improve final product performance. As a result, the process produces less waste and requires less energy.
