Our Alloys

Xtalic’s nanostructured metal alloys are proven in use across forty customer-owned or third-party mass production lines servicing more than half of the top ten consumer electronic OEMs and the thirty top enterprise backplane server manufacturers.

Xtalic materials are strategically created using our patented rapid alloy design platform based on groundbreaking scientific research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Our single-phase, super-saturated, solid-solution alloys — produced using our proprietary electrodeposition techniques — maintain their supercharged properties with a stable nanostructure.
