The steel CMF is a sturdy material. Popularmechanics.com reports that the researchers tested their material against aircraft aluminum in three separate categories. This tests how the wing will tolerate inclement weather. The second test checked how insects stick to the material. Testing shows that the new material outperformed standard wings.
The final test checked how the material erodes relatively to standard airplane wings. Infused CMF offers better performance at the same weight.
