Developing together the materials of tomorrow

Imagining the alloys of the future

Metals and alloys of the future, collaborative research, innovative processes : Lebronze alloys innovates to reinvent the metallurgical industry. Because they are precious, we work daily for a more sober, more intelligent and more sustainable use of materials. We develop value-creating solutions to respond to new uses of metals, to the multiplication of production challenges, as well as to the permanent evolution of regulations. Our 4 main areas of research and development:

Innovative processes

Ecological alternatives

Recycling and material saving

New and robust applications (antimicrobials)

partnerships with European centers of scientific expertise

An ecosystem for innovation

Because complex problems require multidisciplinary approaches, Lebronze alloys collaborates closely with many research centers and industrial players. Source of expertise and perspectives, these partnerships are part of the culture of innovation of the Group. A culture driven by the dedication of employees to meet the present and future requirements of customers and to anticipate developments in the metallurgical sector. All the multidisciplinary skills of Lebronze alloys are mobilized in an R&D model based on three main themes:

Technological and market watch

From the research phase through to the industrialization of innovation, we stay in touch with the market and analyze the competitive, technological and regulatory environment in real time.

Formulation of materials

By capitalizing on technological and market intelligence, we draw on our scientific, metallurgical, mechanical and thermal skills to innovate in new materials with high added value.

Process development

As part of an integrated approach to our production systems, we design certain manufacturing processes ourselves. + customization of industrial paths, the answer to the right need, and the optimization of the TCA and TCO of the customers

Copper, a source of innovation

Copper's extraordinary characteristics in terms of environmental impact make it an indispensable component for future innovations. Did you know that copper, along with 3 alloy metals that we use massively (nickel, zinc and tin) are among the 9 most critical and strategic metals according to a BRGM-McKinsey study?

Ability to alloy with many other metals

Good forming ability

Sanitary protection
(virucide, bactericide, fungicide)

Recyclable (can be recovered throughout its life)

Electrical and thermal conductivity

Various hardening modes (structural, spinodal or alloy hardening)
