Coated zirconia for medical technology by specialized powder synthesis

The composition and homogeneity of the raw materials used are becoming increasingly important in medical technology. 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. At its headquarters in Weimar, the plant manufacturer Glatt Ingenieurtechnik operates various synthesis reactors and develops processes for highly complex powder systems. The process enables the targeted adjustment of chemical as well as mineralogical compositions of material systems.

New Battery Material by Powder Synthesis

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.
Whereas the battery capacity of computers and mobile devices has reached an acceptable level, the expectations of electromobility customers in terms of range and charging speed are not being met. The search for solutions to remedy these deficits is increasingly becoming a driver for innovative new battery materials. With Glatt powder synthesis, a novel type of cutting-edge technology is available that is already being used in the production, activation and coating of new types of battery materials.
