Xtalic has a unique ability to control the properties of metal through grain size manipulation. Our customers primarily focus on leveraging our alloy coatings to optimize the durability, corrosion resistance, and temperature stability of the materials they use to address performance gaps, high cost, or environmental restrictions of their existing solutions. Our technology can deliver additional benefits as well, including improvements in conductivity, magnetic strength, hardness, and ductility. Figure 1 depicts the ability to increase the hardness of traditional nickel and our own nickel tungsten alloy XTRONIC® through grain size reduction. Optimizing the properties of metal by controlling grain size is common, but creating a thermodynamically stable nanostructured metal broadens the utility of these materials across a variety of new applications and markets.
