How it Begins
Chemical solution + atomization
The solution preparation allows for the best molecular mixing and even distribution of elements for precise control of particle to particle stoichiometry & composition.
A rapid reaction between oxidizing chemical salts and fuel. The quick conversion from salts to oxides prevents extended melting and creates stable metallic oxides / carbonates.
High purity, fine powders
The improved homogeneity enhances the ceramic’s properties and behavior. There are thousands of metallic oxide compositions produced by researchers around the world with unlimited compositional and doping possibilities.
Why it's Unique
Combustion synthesis overcomes the deficiencies of conventional solid state reaction by producing materials accurately, agilely, and quickly
Solution-based precursor provides for atomic-scale mixing and infinitely-variable compositional control.
Composition and stoichiometry can be easily adjusted in the precursor stage.
Rapid turnaround and delivery of desired product compositions.
