Examples

  • The second generation design (P2) originally relied on a stronger material called maraging steel which provides a more efficient rotor design and improved speed, hence yielding a higher Separating Work Unit (SWU).

    IAEA's Report on Iran's P2 Centrifuge Design, or is it really P3?

  • A year earlier, a small company in the Chinese port city of Dalian provided Iran with a range of sensitive materials, including graphite, tungsten copper, tungsten powder, high - strength aluminum alloys and high-strength maraging steel, again for its nuclear program.

  • These experts believe Tehran is now close to having exhausted its supply of maraging steel for the IR-1 centrifuges and the more advanced machines.

    Sanctions Slow Iran's Warhead Capability

  • Other key components in Iran's centrifuges, called "bellows," which serve to balance and stabilize the fast-spinning rotors, are made of high-quality maraging steel — a high-strength yet malleable form which is in even shorter supply internationally than carbon fiber, according to nuclear experts.

    Sanctions Slow Iran's Warhead Capability

  • Japan is a major supplier of both maraging steel and carbon fiber.
