CMI Highlights

An aluminum-cerium alloy developed by CMI is now at work generating electricity from moving water. The alloy is exclusively licensed to Eck Industries where it was cast into corrosion-resistant rotor blades and hubs, without the need for heat treatment. The alloy is a finalist for the 2017 R&D100 Award.
