SiC and Si nanopowders in industrial quantity
Patented nanometric powders
Silicon carbide nanopowders for elastomers, polymers, ceramics, metals and Silicon nanopowders for increasing the energy density of the anode in Lithium-ion batteries.
Industrial production of nanopowders
thanks to Laser Pyrolysis
Nanomakers is a company who develops, produces and sells patented silicon based nanometric powders in industrial quantity for disruptive reinforcement of materials (elastomers, polymers, ceramics, metals) and the improvement of energy density of the anode in Lithium-ion batteries.
Discovered by MIT in 1980 and taken over by the CEA in 1985, the LASER PYROLYSIS allows the production of high purity nanopowders.
After 25 years of development at the CEA, the technology (unique in the world), licensed and used by Nanomakers since 2010 and allows it to produce nanoparticles at a industrial scale since 2012.
in use in various applications
The silicon carbide (SiC) and Silicon (Si) nanopowders produced by Nanomakers increase significantly the performances of industrial materials.
The nano SiC can increase the mechanical, thermal and chemical resistances of materials such as elastomers, polymers, ceramics, metals, composites...
The Si or carbon coated Si can improve the energy density of Lithium-ion batteries.
Innovative markets and applications
The Silicon Carbide (SiC) nanopowders are compatible with a wide range of materials. This makes it a good material that all industries can use to reinforce existing materials or develop new ones.
The same goes for Silicon or Silicon coated nanopowders (Si/SiΩC).
A disruptive improvement
