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
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.
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, …)
