With problem solving in our DNA, we can recommend the right materials for the best possible outcome. Together with our technology, the possibilities are limitless:
Aluminium is an abundant, low density metal which offers high plasticity, corrosion resistance, and electrical and thermal conductivity. It’s an easy to process metal and has wide applications as electrical aluminium, including applications for busbars, wires, cabling, and heat exchangers, coolers, and chemical equipment.
Aluminium and zinc powders can be blended together to repair and protect against corrosion or mechanical damage in magnesium and aluminium alloys. As a binder, it acts as a sublayer for conductive coatings on erosion-sensitive substrates like glass and ceramics. As a coating, it builds up quickly with a smooth surface and is easy to machine – making it ideal for filling flaws, freckles, cracks and other defects.
Titanium is one of the Earth’s most abundant metals, laying within its crust. Historically, titanium has been cost prohibitive to manufacture with, although its properties are desirable. Titomic was founded to create a technology which could utilise titanium in manufacturing at a reduced cost. With Titomic Kinetic Fusion, we’re enabling the manufacture of titanium parts to a near-net-shape, cutting material cost and waste by 80%. Titanium is also as strong as steel, at roughly half its weight. With TKF, we’re unlocking commercially feasible titanium manufacturing on a large scale.
Titanium is also highly resistant to corrosion, making it suitable for corrosive environments within the chemical and oil & gas sectors.
Various mixes of nickel, aluminium oxide and zinc offer high-temperature corrosion protection and heat resistance to steel and aluminium parts – as well as filling cavities, cracks and other defects on cast iron parts. Fast layering, easy to machine and providing a smooth surface, the blends also provide an electrically conductive coating for electrical equipment contact platforms.
In 5000 BC; copper was the first metal to be cast into a shape or mould. Today, the popularity for the soft, malleable, and ductile metal remains. Copper offers very high thermal and electrical conductivity, and offers antimicrobial, antibiofouling benefits. Copper is often used in electrical manufacturing for items such as wires, cabling, electric motors, renewable energy production, and electronics.
Various mixes of copper, zinc and aluminium oxide can be applied to metal substrates as conductive, decorative, antibacterial, antifouling and anticorrosive coatings. The blend also fills cavities, cracks and other defects on steel cast iron, bronze and brass parts – as well as coating aluminium, steel, cast iron, ceramic and glass surfaces for tin soldering.
Combine carbon and metal/semi-metallic compounds with other materials to create stronger, more durable cold spray coatings for corrosion, wear and impact protection – and to boost the performance of shafts and housings in a variety of vehicles and plant equipment. We can also apply engineered materials as a safer alternative to dangerous, harmful materials like electroplated hard chrome.
Various mixes of zinc, aluminium and aluminium oxide powders provide corrosion protection to steel and aluminium parts. The blends are also ideal for repairing corrosion or mechanical damage, clamping marks, holes, scratches, cracks, craters and other defects in steel, cast-iron or aluminium appliances – as well as in radiators, condensers, heat exchangers and more.
Pure silver and various powder blends can be used for electrically conductive coatings on copper, aluminium, steel, metal alloys, glass and ceramics.
Tin and aluminium oxide powders can be blended together for conductive and decorative coatings to metal substrates – as well as anti-corrosive coatings for electric power connector contact areas and other electrical equipment.
Repair damaged babbitt layers in slide bearings and electrically conductive coatings on plastics.
As one of the most corrosion-resistant elemental metals, tantalum provides improved performance to a range of substrates. And with a melting point of 2996°C, it’s a strong choice for high-temperature applications – from aircraft engines to rocket projectiles, and within the nuclear and chemical sectors. With a high atomic mass and density, it’s also useful for spacecraft radiation shielding.
Chemically stable, highly conductive and malleable with an impressive ability to conduct heat and reflect light, gold is ideal for manufacturing electronics – as well as ultraviolet radiation shielding for aerospace, and producing surgical instruments and semiconductors.
