Value added chain Mineral Characterization Quality Control Product Optimization Research and Development Sample Production

Product Optimization

During the production process minerals or mineral admixtures are introduced to create specific functions. For example, functional raw materials are used to improve properties such as printability of paper, rheology of coatings, viscosity of glass, surface of technical ceramics, or the porosity of functional layers.

At ANZAPLAN we use our laboratory to analyze the function of minerals or mixtures in the respective product by applying advanced analytical techniques e.g. atomic force microscopy, electron microscopy, and advanced trace element analysis. Once the critical properties of the components are identified, product optimization can be started to further improve the system. At our technical center we can adjust parameters and create prototype products for application tests. Depending on the end user, application tests are carried out at our laboratory or at the customer. For further examples, please visit our download areas:
