With an advanced powder synthesis process, particularly high-quality nano- and microscale powders can be produced or refined – for example, for dental implants. To make the properties of zirconium oxide powders, which are also used in other medical and technical products, even more specific, the particles can be coated, for example. Glatt powder synthesis, a further development of the spray calcination process, is suitable for this purpose. (German article)

Powder synthesis represents a novel process for the production, activation and coating of battery materials. By using a pulsating hot gas flow with adjustable frequencies and amplitudes, powders of the highest quality can be produced. Solutions to address current shortcomings as innovation drivers for new battery materials.

How to generate narrow PSD spherical particles in one step.
Learn about the generation and core-shell-coating of powder materials with new, previously unattained properties. Long-term stability for battery materials through precise, even coating of anode and cathode materials.
Unique new optical effects and maximum protection for paint and coating pigments. Reduced material quantity by core-shell-coated structures for catalytically active powders.
Future materials such as high-energy and safe battery components, more economical membranes, orthopedic 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.
Materials of the future require increasingly specific property profiles. Glatt powder synthesis sets standards in the production of new powder materials for high-performance ceramics, battery materials, catalysts or special pigments. (Article in German language)
To commercialize next-generation cathode materials a lot of different synthesis methods need to be researched and evaluated regarding the attainable electrochemical properties of the materials on one hand, and the scalability of the process on the other. For the high voltage LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 cathode material especially the degradation of the material during cycling needs to be investigated for different scales and techniques. LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 (LNMO) was synthesized using two different methods in different scales: lab-scaled spray drying and pilot-scaled gas pulse drying.
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)
