High Entropy Alloys (HEA)

Thanks to the Hanetec process, all materials can be combined very easily even when they are not reducible in water. Indeed, this revolutionary process extends the field of electrochemistry towards horizons up to unknown levels. It is therefore possible to synthesize alloys of controlled composition that were previously inaccessible in such a simple and rapid manner.

A high entropy alloy (HEA) is a metallic material composed of five or more elements, generally transition metals, present in equivalent or close quantities to each other. Unlike traditional alloys which are often composed of one or two main elements with minor amounts of other elements, HEAs are characterized by a balanced distribution of elements, giving them exceptional properties.
