Arcanum Alloys

Sunnyvale, CA based and backed by Khosla Ventures, Arcanum Alloys has developed platform technology to drive revolutionary performance and margins in numerous metal alloy markets. It is currently scaling up its process for production. Its breakthrough technology combines state of the art vapor deposition techniques with standard steel production processes to decouple surface properties from the bulk properties of metals. This technology enables higher performance and improved economics versus traditional alloys. Initial products will transform the stainless steel industry, particularly in applications where forming operations are required or beneficial. Full scale production will be accomplished with small modifications to existing manufacturing assets in the steel industry. Large manufacturing customers in the home appliance, commercial kitchen and architectural industries have validated its products with multiple stamping trials on customer press lines completed.
