Projects & advices for developing applications

Customized technical trials

Nanomakers has developed various technical skills through numerious research projects aiming at answering its customers’ needs.

Preparation of electrodes and cells of Li-ion batteries

Cell preparation

Nanomakers has a long experience in anode formulation and has its own equipments to make and test electrodes.

We develop our own formulation of silicon based anode by adding our nano Si. Our R&D team can also adapt the anode preparation according to customers’ formulations.

Sintering SiC and Si nanopowders

By Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS)

Nanomakers work on the sintering of SiC and Si nanopowders to obtain sintered parts which will be interested in semiconductor or aerospace sector. We have some development projects which aim to get sintered parts with variable densities (from 40% to >99%), with or without sintering additives.

Nano SiC or Nano Si

Realization of colloidal slurries

Slurries containing nanoparticles

We collaborate with our customers to establish their specifications in order to make adapted slurries to their needs. This goes by defining data such as:

the solid loading ratio

the viscosity of final slurry

the stability target

We exchange with our customers to define dispersion trials according to their problems and their constraints. This goes by selecting options such as:

the trial at lab scale then semi-pilot

the choice of solvents (water based or organic)

the use of additives (stabilizers, dispersants, …)
