Prospective Applications of Gas-Eutectic Porous Materials (Gasars) in USA
The paper summarizes new and published data and also deals with structure, applications, and properties of gasars – new porous materials based on gas-eutectic reaction which was establish in USSR in 1976-1980. The method consists of melting a material in an active gas atmosphere and solidifying under controlled conditions. The materials produced by this method, have a solid matrix and pores of varied geometric shapes, providing to gasars much higher strength, plasticity, thermal and electrical conductivities as compared with those of other porous materials. For USA gasars can be recommended for there are many applications for civil and military industries.
