Application-Specific High-Tech Materials With Unparalleled Performance

Nowadays, practically all industries are in need of new materials. Although major powder manufacturers continually innovate their products, they follow the trend of standardization in order to improve their margins. As a result, the available range remains focused on a narrow spectrum of standard materials. APPtec® enables application-specific solutions for powder materials with unparalleled performance: With our groundbreaking powder technology, innovative particle systems for high-performance applications can be purposely developed, functionalized, and transferred to ready-to-use processing forms. Through an exact and customer-specific configuration of material properties, you can develop particles with property combinations which were impossible until now. You will receive functional powder materials adapted to your requirements, with unique features allowing you to set yourself apart from the standard range of key market players.

Our intelligent solution to give you the competitive edge.


Cost-Efficient Processing for Material Developments That Make Financial Sense

APPtec® allows several process phases to be combined, such as drying and calcination or particle formation and coating. As a result, a vast array of properties can be configured for the desired performance of the end product – in a single process step, saving time and money. Our technology for maximum cost-effectiveness.

The new powder technology is opening up tremendous potential for the development and manufacture of low-cost, functional powder materials through application-specific functionalization. This allows demand-oriented material alternatives for high-priced raw materials, such as rare earth and precious metals to be developed. In some application fields, such as in relation to catalysts, it will soon even be possible to create alternative mixed oxides with similar or higher activity. Our promise for economical, future-focused solutions.

The powder manufacturing process is scalable to suit each customer and can be transferred directly to technical production without a long scale-up process.

Our solution to give you the edge on the market.
