Using completely new technology, pigment specialists at Merck and Glatt Ingenieurtechnik’s technology and production experts have worked closely together to produce an innovative range of cosmetic pigments. The Darmstadt-based Merck Group placed an order for the development and construction of a plant based on chemical vapour deposition (CVD) after successful joint trials at Glatt’s location in Weimar. We interview the partner companies about the cooperation and the project.

On 30 June 2023, a completely new type of production plant for special effect pigments was officially commissioned at the Glatt Technology Centre. The Darmstadt-based Merck Group placed the order for the development and construction of a plant based on chemical vapour deposition (CVD). The Dryflux technology is suitable for numerous powder applications.
Glatt Ingenieurtechnik: Pioneer in the East and in cutting-edge research
The plant engineering company Glatt Ingenieurtechnik is one of the most innovative companies in the East and conducts research into the materials and production processes of the future. (German article)
Whether it’s rapid prototyping, customisation or personalisation, paint manufacturers can usually only dream of what has long been a reality in other industries. Their ideas are thwarted by minimum purchase quantities, a lack of know-how, expensive machinery or the unavailability of yet-to-be-developed powder types. Thanks to a novel method of spray calcination, test-ready additives for rapid market entry can be ready in just a few weeks.
Spray calcination // Their share in the paint system is only a few percent, but their effect triggers buying impulses and makes the cash registers of vehicle manufacturers and furniture producers ring: Matting agents. Thanks to a novel process of spray calcination in a pulsating stream of hot gas, new ideas can be turned into additives ready for testing within just a few weeks. (Article in German language)
With APPtec® for thermal powder synthesis and high-temperature fluid bed, plant manufacturer Glatt Ingenieurtechnik offers effective manufacturing processes for unique product properties. For particle design and the development of customized processes, Glatt has apparatus and equipment on a laboratory, pilot and production scale. (Article in German language)
A new thermal process for powder production – Advanced Pulse Powder Technology – is designed to enable targeted particle design. Manufacturers of advanced ceramics can thus achieve unique and customized product properties. (Article in German language)
Glatt Ingenieurtechnik developed a new powder technology that allows powder composition and particle design to be adjusted to meet a customer’s specific application needs. By synthesising the powder in a pulsed hot gas stream, product structures can now be generated that were not accessible with conventional techniques.
Powder production accelerates pulse beat – spray pyrolysis reactor for pigments and catalysts.
Tailor-made – this stands for unique, high-quality and suitable. The Apptec process developed by Glatt for powder synthesis, on the other hand, leaves little room for chance. With a pulsating hot gas stream, this further development of spray pyrolysis enables unerring particle design for application fields such as catalyst and pigment development.
