that they are looking to change the way that steel is manufactured. Arcanum Alloys has developed a breakthrough technology to drive revolutionary performance and margins in numerous metal alloy markets. They are currently commercializing two products that are using Surface-Optimized Diffusion Alloy technology (SODA). One is a stainless steel alternative, where a low-carbon steel's surface is converted into a stainless-steel alloy that's metallurgically bonded to the substrate. That lowers the costs, improves the formability, and gives incredible corrosion performance. The second product is an electrical steel alternative, with improved performance.
