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)
Continuous process for manufacturing powders with customis-able properties – Whatever the field – medical engineering, battery technology or special pigments – companies looking to develop new applications for high-performance materials are dependent on new and innovative production technologies. A milestone in the produc-tion of customised powders has now been reached in Weimar, Germany.
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.
