Functional systems such as smart, sustainable textiles or packaging, inkjet inks and battery systems for electromobility are playing an increasingly important role in our everyday lives. An important step in the development of these products is the precise and careful formulation. Crucial in formulation development is the selection and coordination of the following components:
Benefit from our extensive know-how in the field of formulation, both in the implementation of your ideas and requirements for formulations and in the selection of individual components. We will be happy to provide you with additional support in the form of material research tailored to your product. Another aspect is the long-term stabilisation of your suspensions or emulsions. Optimal dispersibility through the targeted use of process additives and improvement of material end properties through special particle functionalisation are our top priorities.
The competences of the EZD are complemented by a close exchange of experience with the application laboratories of equipment manufacturers. This ensures that the equipment in our laboratories is always state of the art.
Freeze-drying is a product-friendly method for drying organic or inorganic materials.
In particular, freeze drying is suitable for
Freeze-drying of nanomaterials and polymer dispersions offers great potential.
Our freeze-drying offers
For the safe handling of nanoscale materials, the glovebox offers the following features for active personal protection
The climatic test chamber offers
The use of a refrigerated centrifuge is particularly suitable for separation processes such as, for example, for
For this purpose, the centrifugation process can be specially adapted to the required parameters of the system:
The use of a low-pressure plasma for powders and films can have a targeted influence on the surface properties. Typical areas of application for low-pressure plasma in powders and films include
In this process, the surfaces of the material systems are treated with different plasmas between 20 and a maximum of 50 °C and a pressure between 0.1 - 1 mbar. The plasmas can be of the following types
By using low process temperatures, even thermally labile material systems can be treated by plasma without fear of decomposition.
Universal ovens and vacuum drying ovens are used for curing and degassing resin systems or adhesive formulations as well as coating materials.
The rotary evaporator is suitable
Different parameters can be selected:
With the help of the automatable laboratory reactor, chemical syntheses can be controlled optimally and fully automatically. The following reactions are particularly suitable for this:
The process can be specially adapted to customer requirements and automated by means of software. In particular, the following process steps can be influenced:
Volumes up to a maximum of 1,000 mL and temperatures between 20 °C - 180 °C can be used.
