Redefining
Possible

From the first gas turbine prototypes of the 1940's to today’s largest airliners, our leading edge alloys have redefined what’s possible in manned flight.


Pushing New Frontiers

We didn’t dream of building the first airplane or the first spacecraft—but our creative spirit lead to the materials that made it possible.


Powering Gas Turbine Technology

Special Metals was critically involved at the beginning of gas turbine technology and remains a world leader in the development of the superalloys that make them possible.

Empowering Space Exploration

SpaceX is using INCONEL® alloy 718 for its new SuperDraco engine for the Dragon V2 crew-carrying space capsule.

Shooting The Moon With X-750

INCONEL® alloy X-750 was used for the F-1 rocket engine used in the first stage of the Saturn V booster.
