Our process starts when we receive material performance requirements from our customers. In order to control quality, we utilize only materials that are manufactured on site. The process of fulfilling the performance requirements involves working through numerous material combinations, and sometimes leads to the creation of material that has never before been manufactured. Depending on their physical characteristics, these custom alloy powders can be manufactured into various forms, including rods, tubes, plates, fasteners, targets, crucibles, and even evaporation pellets and pieces. Custom alloys are used in a variety of industries including fiber optics, aerospace, automotive, fuel cell manufacturing, and optical coatings.
