Typically, metals are all composed of highly ordered, crystalline structures of atoms. While there are obvious uses and benefits of this type of atomic arrangement, there is a limit to how strong any metal is ultimately capable of being. However, an amorphous metal, or "metallic glass," is a fully-solid metal material that has its atomic-scale structure completely disordered, similar to conventional glass. Until recently the only way to produce metallic glass was to rapidly cool metal before its solid-state crystalline structure could form, which meant that it was difficult to produce in large enough amounts to be widely adopted for industrial uses.
