Learning from firefighting, we can try to remove the heat, remove the fuel, or remove the oxygen. Removing the heat can only be achieved by design – moving parts away from heat sources, or including heat shields. To address the other solution routes, we considered the option of how we could remove the oxygen.
Removing the oxygen might seem impossible at first glance, but that only makes the challenge more interesting. We built on the way that stainless steel prevents rust (another controlled burning process) by forming a thin, stable film that protects the core from oxidation.
Our Diablo technology is designed so that when the outer layer oxidizes, it forms on oxygen-barrier layer that protects the inner core from oxidation. This approach has achieved vast improvements to the upper temperature limit of where our materials can be used, outperforming the competition.
