If the materials you want are not included, you are invited to consult our staff for more information on expected properties.





Founded by Paul Albert, Sc.D., ACI has a long history in the fabrication of metals and alloys for thin films. Dr. Albert has over 50 years of experience in metallurgy. Our long history in materials and thin film deposition affords our customers an expertise with the creation of custom alloys.


Our processes include vacuum-arc melting on cold-copper hearths, which minimize contamination and results in a high-purity product, whether it is a pure metal or a custom alloy. This process also maximizes uniformity and homogeneity of the alloy. Our staff of experienced metallurgists can create just about any alloy you can imagine.

ACI Alloys has a full machine shop in house with turning, milling, rolling, heat-treating, bonding, and grinding capabilities, manned by a staff of highly skilled machinists who can quickly and carefully fabricate almost any material imaginable.

We understand the need for fast response in both quoting prices and delivery of materials. See our RFQ page for an online quote, or phone in your request.
