SACHEM’s, Avanta AC™ has two applications: Advanced Ceramics and Casting or Investment Casting.
Advanced ceramics play a vital role in today’s world of high performance materials. From electronic components to engineering ceramics to biomedical devices, advances in the production of ceramic materials pave the way to present and future “miracles”. Recent developments focus on the production of high‐purity ceramic powders at the nanometer scale. Such nanopowders enable advanced microminiaturization, reduction in energy and waste in subsequent processing, and lead to components and devices with high performance and high reliability. SACHEM offers Avanta AC™ Ceramics Solutions, a family of processing aid solutions, delivers unique advantages over inorganic compounds in the manufacture of advanced ceramic nanopowders.
Investment casting technique (or lost-wax) presents advantages in the production of complex structure parts with key benefits of higher flexibility in design and potential lower cost. However, due to the high reactivity of certain metals/alloys, the reactions between them and mold materials result in the formation of α -phase, which deteriorates the surface and changes the mechanical properties of casting parts. Therefore, conventional refractory materials are not suitable and specific Primary coats (or face-coats) need to be applied. Avanta AC™ chemicals are ideal for formulators creating solutions specifically designed for the requirements of reactive metals castings manufacturing challenges.
Among a variety of potential production methods, solution-based chemical methods represent cost-effective and efficient methods of manufacturing nanopowders. SACHEM’s Avanta AC™ products can increase the manufacturing performance of these well-established manufacturing methods, with improvements in:
- Controllable particle size / Narrow particle size distribution
- Compositional homogeneity /Controllable stoechiometry
- Stronger base than NH4OH
- High purity (non-metal containing) / Quality control / Safety concerned
- Worldwide organization (productions / R&D / Sales / Logistics)
- Chemical Science based approach / Molecular Design
Innovation advanced ceramic nanopowders are critical to a variety of leading edge technology applications, ranging from electronics, superconductors, transparent conductive coatings and inorganic membranes for fuel cells. Let SACHEM’s growing family of Avanta AC™ products help you make the high quality metal oxide nanopowders required for your demanding application.
