Custom made Particle Solutions

You are looking for an expert that is able to tailor nanoparticles in dispersion according to your needs?

Commercially available nanoparticles are useless for your as they are always aggregated and cannot be dispersed? You want to improve your materials by adding particles to create novel composites?

We offer custom manufacturing of small particles matching your materials to serve your needs. We offer materials development: from profound literature research, feasability studies and pre-tests to complete prototype manufacturing. Contact us. We develop solutions: Email
