Metals Market: Ready to Takeoff?

Metals Market: Ready to Takeoff? Metals market guru Tom Stundza reports in a recent Purchasing magazine feature that demand — especially for alloying and plating metals — could have a big rebound in the second half of 2009. "Almost every market researcher expects relatively strong recovery in consumption of nickel, zinc, and even tin because of projected infrastructure spending," he says. The timing depends largely on demand from the U.S., the European Union, and Japan. But the fly in the ointment, as far as prices go, is the current market surplus of these metals — meaning stocks will have to decline before prices trend upward.

Invar Inner Hull Handles LNG

Invar Inner Hull Handles LNG Modern liquefied natural gas tankers carry more super-cold fuel in their hulls rather than in separate spherical tanks. But the -163 C temperature can embrittle the outer hull steel. So a low coefficient of thermal expansion Invar steel inner hull is insulated with plasma 'wetted' epoxy bonded polyurethane and wood panels for an integral seal.

Silver Strengthens Steel Bike Frames

Silver Strengthens Steel Bike Frames Sacha White's Vanilla Bicycles have a 180-bike backlog (no new orders please). The light steel frames weigh around 40 oz. The tubes are brazed into their attaching end lugs with a silver alloy rather than brass. The resulting joint is stronger, but the lower melting point of the alloy allows preserving the strength of the steel tubes.

Magnesium Boosts Vehicle Applications

Magnesium Boosts Vehicle Applications According to an ASM International report, all types of vehicles will benefit from increased magnesium structural content (view video). High strength-to-weight and damping, plus good electrical and thermal conductivity improve payload and structural efficiency. The metal is plentiful in seawater and is used in aluminum alloying and steel processing.

Copper Collapse Coming

Copper Collapse Coming The global economic crisis has cut copper demand. After rising nearly 40% this year (the highest in 23 years), rapid global market contractions have analysts projecting price declines of 21% for the second quarter. Prices rose as China stockpiled the metal, but dropping demand in housing and cars will cause copper use to plummet.

Process Produces Strong Nanostructures

Process Produces Strong Nanostructures A sheet fabrication technology produces nano-grained, high-strength magnesium sheets for auto, aerospace, and possible medical use. Sheets are formed by injection molding liquid magnesium alloys into plates, which are rolled and heat treated for final mechanical properties and shape. The process was developed with the University of Michigan.

Catalyst Jump Starts Ethanol Fuel Cells

Catalyst Jump Starts Ethanol Fuel Cells Ethanol-powered fuel cells seemed doomed by a slow oxidation rate. Now the renewable, energy-dense fuel appears practical as Brookhaven National Laboratory researchers used a new catalyst of platinum and rhodium atoms built on tin dioxide nanoparticles. The catalyst may also be applied to other energy and catalytic processes.

Retirement Account Tanked? Try Gold

Retirement Account Tanked? Try Gold Sooner or later, you have to start thinking about retirement. With a down global economy, what alternatives can you consider? The question is what are you permitted to buy in a U.S. individual retirement account (IRA)? Self-directed IRAs can only 'invest' in gold, silver, platinum, and palladium, says Bill Humphrey, a self-directed IRA custodian. You can't buy collectibles or rare coins. Purity is how quality is measured for the IRA — which means you are limited to certified bars or select U.S. precious metal coins.

Diversions . . .
The Dirt on Dirt Bikes

The Dirt on Dirt Bikes Concerns about getting the lead out of your dirt bike aren't always about speed. Last year's U.S. Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act may have activated the Law of Unintended Consequences. The edict permits only minute levels of lead in products for children. But dirt bikes have lead in components such as valve stems and brake pads and were banned because a child could (in theory) have access to lick them. Officials are now looking at correcting the situation without further legislation.
