Australian Strategic Materials (ASX:ASM) has produced 120 kilograms of titanium copper alloy with 99.5% purity at its facility in South Korea, confirming the commercial scalability of its innovative metallisation process. The company believes that this successful demonstration of the commercial scalability is due to the improved and unique metallisation process.

The Ziron Tech team led by ASM produced two 60-kilogram runs of the titanium copper alloy with a daily rate of around 1,000 kilograms.

This production rate is far higher than the mutually agreed rate of production of 250 kilograms per day by ASM and Dongkuk Refractories and Steel Co Ltd (DK R&S) as a part of their agreement announced on 2 November 2020.

The key to this compelling show of the commercial scalability has been attributed to proprietary advancements to the unique metallisation process, in which the efficiency of metal recovery dramatically increased and doubled the yield. This also affirms ASM’s ability to produce any type of titanium alloy traded in the global metal market.
