In an industry driven to achieve better fuel efficiency, the demand to innovate with lightweight materials is strong. Xtalic provides nanostructured metal alloys – such as nano-Al – with the strength of steel with the lightweight properties of aluminum, which is attractive if you have weight reducing initiatives. Our nano-Al alloys have tensile strengths two to three times greater than traditional commercial aluminum alloys. In certain strength-limited applications, nano-Al alloys can replace traditional steel components of the same size to realize weight savings of up to 70%. For example, Xtalic is presently engaged in a project supported by the US Department of Energy and partnered with Chrysler-Fiat USA to demonstrate such a component.
