Applications

Arcanum Alloys provides value added materials in nearly every metal manufacturing industry.  In some cases, Arcanum’s materials enhance old processes and products.  In other cases Arcanum’s materials make new processes and products possible.  Arcanum Alloys has demonstrated its patented platform technology on raw and finished goods.

COILED SHEET, FOIL,

COILED SHEET, FOIL, & PLATE
Arcanum Alloys first product, Optiform® was designed to provide scrap reduction, minimize press set up time, and capacity increases to manufacturers who used stainless steel sheet. A byproduct of the development of this material was the ability to tailor the corrosion resistance and formability of the material. The material is frequently used in commercial goods such as appliances, but provides value in any market where forming of stainless sheet is needed. Optiform has been run on press lines previously only capable of forming low carbon steel, and its use improves asset values substantially. Optiform has been welded using ER308 and other similar welding rods with great success, particularly in maintaining the stainless character of the surface. To be sure, Arcanum Alloys sees other applications as target markets in sheet, specifically with silicon steels, where segregation of silicon to the surface of the material demonstrates unique, advantageous electromagnetic properties.

PIPE

PIPE & TUBE
Tube and pipe can be produced by extrusion or forming and welding of sheet/plate material. Electrical resistance welding of roll formed Optiform has been demonstrated to create pipe in various dimensions. For extruded pipe and tube products, Arcanum has demonstrated substantially enhanced corrosion resistance and inner-diameter morphology improvements on pipe with highly varied dimensions. Initial work in this application has focused on improving corrosion resistance and inner-diameter roughness, but Arcanum Alloys has also demonstrated solutions to optimize the balance between thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance in heat exchanger tubing.

WIRE

WIRE & ROD
The same type of coating that Arcanum Alloys rolls onto coil strip can be applied to wire and rod. The thermal treatment that follows coating creates an alloy layer that is uniform and the alloy concentration can be tailored in much the same manner as the original sheet application. In wire and rod, where parts are sometimes made into fasteners, screws, and nuts, material properties can be adjusted before or after shaping into the final product. An extremely wide variety of material properties can be achieved using spatial segregation of alloy layers. Arcanum has demonstrated increased corrosion resistance, surface hardness, and even anti-microbial alloys on top of standard low carbon steel, carbon steel, and stainless rod and wire.
