Amorphous Metal

Amorphous metals are metallic materials that are often refered to as metallic glasses. Unlike ordinary metals which have an ordered crystalline arrangement of their atoms amorphous metals have an entirely disordered atomic structure which ensures they have no weak points within the metal alloy. There are a number of ways to create amorphous metals however the most common is super cooling a molten metal so quickly that the atoms do not have time to form a crystalline structure.

Amorphous metals have been used to create underfloor heating ribbons however they appear to offer no tangible advantages over conventional resistance foil and have proved to be very easily torn and damaged during installation.
