The main business field of PlasmaChem concerns nano-materials, detonation-, vacuum-, plasma- and ultra-thin film technologies and their biomedical and technical applications.
PlasmaChem offers new products for research and industry: Nanopowders (NanoDiamonds, NanoCeramics, NanoMetals and composite Nano-particles. In 2005 PlasmaChem has launched the first-in-the-world General Catalogue of Nanomaterials and related products.
Plasmachem performs chemical and low temperature plasma modification of nanopowders with the purpose of functionalization of nano-particle’s surface assisted by new plasma-chemical methods developed by PlasmaChem for ultra-dispersed materials. This approach leads to a new family of industrial nano-products with improved and tailor-made properties.
Along with advanced nano-particles PlasmaChem developed novel ready-to-use industrial nano-products like nano-abrasives, additives to engine oils and composite nano-suspensions for electroplating and electroless plating of metals.
