Materials On Demand®

Detroit Materials can develop custom grades for your specific application. Our MATERIALS ON DEMAND®  approach combines the fundamentals of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering  with our property databases, and complex simulation models. 

Computational Thermodynamics




  • Phase Diagram Simulation
  • Nucleation Simulation
  • Microscopy
  • Diffraction
  • Spectroscopy
  • Material Characterization
  • Casting Simulation
  • Topological Optimization


This methodology has proven successful in the development of of ultra-high performance perlitic and bainitic steels. We can re-engineer our steels to combine specific properties, such as hardness and toughness, or strength and toughness, to optimize your application.
