NanoAL Launches First-of-its-Kind Addalloy 5T Aluminum Powder for Additive Manufacturing

Edison Gold Award-winning powder delivers cost-effective, lightweight, high-performance solution

NanoAL commercialized its metal AM technology named Addalloy 5T. The materials research and technology company creates high-performance nanostructured alloy powders for consumer applications. The new alloy powder is designed for laser powder bed fusion additive manufacturing. The company bills its invention as easy to use and cost-effective to process.

Addalloy 5T’s design specifications eliminate secondary powder treatments or blends. It is a 100% pre-alloyed powder. The powder lets users create advanced microstructures via the company’s nanotechnology. The powder is a uniform alloy composed of spherical particles, which improves powder spreadability and recovery during printing. The powder is also heat treatable: it is designed to be precipitation strengthened with post-processing thermal treatments.

“I’m excited to see Addalloy powder product commercialized, enabling engineers and designers to fully leverage the technology advancement of 3D-printing and attractive characteristics of high-performance aluminum alloys,” said Dr. Nhon Vo, CEO of NanoAL.
