About Alchemy At Alchemy, our mission is to build a nanotechnology company for the 21st century.

As a team, we’re pretty obsessive about this mission and relentless about accomplishing it.

Today, Alchemy’s nanocoatings technologies are disrupting the automotive windshield replacement industry and enabling multi-climate reliability of advanced sensor systems.

Our aftermarket product, ExoShield, is a transparent film that is applied on a vehicle’s windshield (just like window tint) to prevent stone chips.

ExoShield is a must have for today’s ADAS-equipped vehicle owners who want to protect themselves against expensive windshield replacements.

In addition, Alchemy’s nanocoatings technologies can also be leveraged to improve the multi-climate reliability of various sensor systems, such as those in self-driving vehicles.

Alchemy is a Y-Combinator funded startup, and is backed by Canada’s leading angel investors and venture capitalists.

We are also supported by top institutions such as the Stanford-StartX, University of Waterloo, Waterloo Institute of Nanotechnology, Velocity, and the Creative Destruction Lab.

Responsibilities Windshield protection film is a massively growing segment in the automotive aftermarket industry.
