Metalysis (or “the Company”), which has a disruptive technology for solid-state metals and novel alloys production, has signed a joint research and development programme (“the R&D Programme”) with an international partner, to co-create a high value aluminium-scandium alloy.
“Aluminium-scandium alloys are a huge subject of interest to Metalysis, and while their cost implications are well-known, so are their highly beneficial characteristics. The ‘unknown’ element of this picture is how disruptive technologies will traverse historic barriers to manufacturing these alloys, and this is exactly what we will address”.
Dion Vaughan, CEO of Metalysis
The R&D Programme will investigate the use of Metalysis’ electrochemical technology to provide a scandium-rich feedstock addition, supporting master alloy production. Aluminium-scandium alloys offer unique strength and light-weighting characteristics. They are of increasing demand among high specification manufacturing applications such Read more
