We supply materials, methods, and equipment to minimize material degradation and infrastructure failure.
Steel corrodes, cement crumbles; material deterioration due to harsh elements increases maintenance costs and production downtime. AlphaGen Materials Inc. manufactures and sells CerarMix™, a polymer metallic-ceramic composite that can be used either as a coating to repair existing infrastructure or in the manufacture of individual parts and components with superior physical attributes compared to competitive alternatives.
Specifically, the abrasive, erosive, and corrosive preventative properties of CerarMix™, as well as its fire resistance, improve the performance and extend the useful lives of products made from fiberglass reinforced polymers, concrete, metals, and bio-materials.
CerarMix™ creates better abrasion, corrosion, and heat resistance compared to conventional polymer construction.
CerarMix™ is applied by our patented nanotechnology AlphaSpray™ system with quick turnaround, reducing asset downtime.
CerarMix™ returns structural integrity to eroded and corroded substrates, adding increased strength and asset revitalization.
CerarMix is available in two different formulas
The original formula, CerarMix C1 is a corrosion resistant composite for everyday use in sewers, water systems, building systems and general industrial use.
AR1 is a composite designed for more highly corrosive and abrasive environments involving acid washes, caustic chemical holding tanks, and aggregate and chemical delivery systems.
AlphaGen Materials is seeking to license companies to apply our patented systems. If interested, fill out our potential partner form.
