Rene'142 is a high strength, nickel base Directionally Solidified (DS) Turbine alloy, which is now operational in commercial and military jet engines. Rene'l42 is directionally solidified with columnar grain boundaries; this process is less expensive than the directionally solidified single crystal (no grain boundaries) process, due to easier mold making, faster casting, less expensive inspection and higher yields. Rene'142 has rupture strength equivalent to single crystal Rene'N4, PWA 1480, and CMSX-3.
