TEMPE, Arizona, Feb. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SDCmaterials today announced that it has received an initial purchase order from CarSound, a leading aftermarket exhaust system supplier. The purchase order, with deliveries starting in the first quarter of 2017, is for SDC's Nano-on-Nano™ based automotive catalysts ingredients, which will be integrated into CarSound's catalysts.
"Providing critical ingredients to CarSound for their highly respected aftermarket exhaust systems is a great achievement for SDC and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship," said SDC Executive Chairman Bill Staron.
"Having passed the rigors of our internal verification, and governmental certification processes, we are going to market with confidence that Nano-on-Nano™ based CarSound products will provide real benefits to our company and our customers," said CarSound Chief Strategy Officer Peter Nitoglia.
SDC's Nano-on-Nano™ formulation, applied to exhaust-treatment catalysts, requires as little as 40 to 60 percent of the platinum-group metals in traditional catalysts, essentially doubling the efficiency of the precious-metal composition.
