In fact, the steel, now trademarked as Flash Bainite, has tested stronger and more shock-absorbing than the most common titanium alloys used by industry.
Flash Bainite is the strongest, most ductile, lean alloyed, readily weldable, least expensive ultra strength metal known to man.

These are multiphase steels, whose microstructure consists of ferrite, bainite and a small amount of retained austenite (Bleck, 2002).
However, since the formation of bainite and ausferrite occur uniformly throughout the part over many minutes or hours, austempered components exhibit consistent dimensional response and no cracking.
