The Manufacturing Science and Technoloy Center develops both aqueous and non-aqueous chemical synthesis routes to generate highly controlled ceramic powders for fabrication of electronic components.
Chemical synthesis methods offer advantages over conventional ceramic processing including superior chemical homogeneity, precise control of additives and minimization of contaminants. In our labs we scale synthesis routes from bench-scale through pilot production quantities (up to 10 kg batch size).
Other areas of expertise include developing coatings for catalyst supports, process characterization and optimization through Design of Experiments, and integration of powder synthesis processes with subsequent billet and component fabrication processes.
