American Elements’ catalog of more than 15,000 products makes it the world’s largest manufacturer devoted exclusively to advanced materials in industrial bulk and laboratory/research quantities. The company’s materials research programs have been a key resource for academic & corporate new product development for over two decades. Our ability to cost-effectively scale these lab top successes to industrial scale production has been instrumental to ushering in many of the fundamental technological breakthroughs since 1990 including LED lighting, smartphones, and electric cars.American Elements, global manufacturer of high purity metals, ceramic, graphene, composites, polymer, & nanomaterials for research in nanoelectronics, aerospace & advanced materials.
Cerion is a leader in the science of designing, scaling and manufacturing metal, metal oxide and ceramic nanomaterials for companies developing products or systems.
The cost of developing advanced expertise in nanomaterials is prohibitively expensive and time intensive, resulting in a significant barrier to entry for companies considering its adoption. Cerion provides companies with access to this expertise through all phases of the product lifecycle including applied research, development, scale-up, commercialization and manufacturing.
Cerion’s position in the market is enabled by three strategic competitive advantages: deep and demonstrated capability in a.) precision design and customization of both nanoparticle size and technical attributes, b.) robust processes to scale materials from prototype to low and high-volume production rates, and c.) industry-leading, cost-effective manufacturing systems and production capacities.
