Pioneering Process for Groundbreaking Particle Synthesis
Future materials such as high-energy and safe battery components, more economical membranes, orthopaedic ceramics, functional additives or high-performance pigments must provide more than the current properties of existing material components. A common issue within each of these applications is the high levels of powder performance that are required. Therefore, completely new products or novel innovations require powder materials that must first be developed and then manufactured in the necessary quantities. With APPtec®, plant manufacturer Glatt/DE has succeeded in overcoming these challenges and established a mature continuous process technology to produce future materials at both laboratory scale for research purposes and at industrial levels. Time-consuming and risky scale-up procedures are eliminated because of the size-independent conditions – fluid mechanic and thermodynamic – that exist from labto commercial-scale production. With APPtec®, primary particles can be provided with an almost freely adjustable chemical and mineralogical composition and previously unattained properties.
