Demands for cost reduction, performance improvement, constructability, and sustainability in the building materials supply chain signal that change is the new normal. Companies are tackling these demands with innovative new formulations like tiny nanoscale particles of titanium dioxide in concrete to improve carbon absorbtion and meet customer demand. Or, by the use of bioplastics derived from plant, animal, fungal, and bacterial sources.
To fuel these kinds of innovations while also improving innovation, agility, and efficiency in their operations, materials companies are turning to digital strategies for greater connectivity between raw material suppliers, building material producers, and end customers. Central to this strategy is the digitization and connection of the materials testing labs that drive the development and qualification of materials.
To aid in efficiently tackling these challenges, Alchemy is accelerating cost reduction, sustainability, and product development efforts with our all-in-one LabOS digital platform. By automatically capturing, organizing, and integrating data across the entire organizational flow from R&D to End Use– our customers are able to quickly search for the right information when they need it, manage testing workflows, hit deadlines, and make product and process improvements. Our no-code platform features embedded AI, enabling you to move fast and adapt to the changing requirements of your industry.

What’s Included in Alchemy
Alchemy serves cement, aggregate, concrete, asphalt, brick, and construction companies by providing all the functionality you need in a single, flexible platform. It is customized to meet the specific needs of the building materials industry.
Key features include:
Solving Your Problems
Cost improvements and product innovation are driven by the ability to analyze and compare material properties, determine how to best meet performance specifications, and save on rework and retesting. Quality, consistency, and profit margins at scale are impaired if your organization doesn’t know how specific outcomes are achieved. Alchemy provides the functionality to gather, organize, and leverage vast amounts of data, re-use previous experiments, make high impact decisions quickly, predict formulations, and implement a digitization strategy that fits your needs.
