Apple acquires exclusive use for Liquidmetal

Apple has recently make an agreement with Liquidmetal Technologies, the company that produces the material that carries its name, to be applied in technological products developed by them for the electronic market.

Liquidmetal is produced since 2003. It is an alloy with metallic properties twice more resistant than Titanium and with a high capacity to resist impacts. This means that the solution could be applied to all of their products to improve their coverage. The material could also be used for other purposes, such as the creation of covers due to its high resistance.

By this agreement, Apple tries to hold back their competitors since by preventing them from using Liquidmetal, they won´t have to worry about the materials used to manufacture other portable computers or laptops.
