SiC and Si nanopowders in industrial quantity
Patented nanometric powders
Silicon carbide nanopowders for elastomers, polymers, ceramics, metals and silicon nanopowders for the improvement of 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 PYROLYSE 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
Silicon carbide (SiC) nanopowders are compatible with a wide range of materials. This makes it a material of choice that any kind of industry can use to strengthen existing materials or develop new ones.
The same goes for Silicon or Silicon coated nanopowders (Si/SiΩC).
A disruptive improvement
thanks to nanomaterials
All materials industries are concerned with the decisive improvement of its products and the development of solutions for sustainable development. Each of the major markets involved in the use of nano SiC will find solutions for:
Optimizing existing materials and developing future materials
Preserving natural resources and participating in sustainable development
