New coating? Titanium-3
Im assuming you guys would be all over this already but just in case you aren't... this just popped up on my facebook feed (in a blacksmithing group no less!), what do you guys think? http://futurism.com/physicists-combine-gold-with-titanium-and-quadruple-its-strength/ . Im going to go out on a limb here and say that billet at the top of the article is not really titanium-3 so it may be while before we even get a usable amount but it seems interesting none the less.
