Scalable manufacturing of nanostructured, electro-conductive, carbon blacks

We aim at surface modification of inorganic fillers such as electro-conductive carbon (EC) blacks. Tuning the surface properties enhances the performance of these EC-Blacks in different applications, such as conductive polyolefins, coatings, thermosets etc. We will do this by utilizing manufacturing techniques, such as atomic layer- and chemical vapor deposition (ALD and CVD) for coating of the carbon black powder in gas phase. These techniques are scalable: we develop technology that can be used to produce large quantities of material.
