Tekna works in partnership with customers to develop added value materials using plasma technology. Over the last 15 years, our R&D services, supported by a team of highly qualified scientists and technicians, has helped customers to develop new materials and new markets without committing large amounts of capital. Our R&D services are very broad, and range from the development of advanced materials and new applications to powder manufacturing and treatment.
Tekna’s facilities are equipped with multiple R&D plasma units to undertake the most demanding research programs. Also, R&D projects are assisted by a state-of-the-art laboratory equipped with a wide range of high quality analytical instruments to accurately characterize all types of physical and chemical powder properties, including crystalline structure (XRD), morphology/composition (SEM/EDS), particle size distribution (Malvern™) and surface area (BET). Tekna also offers numerical modeling to evaluate, for instance, new equipment design and process performance.
