You profit from an innovative partner that supports you over the long term around the world. Together with you, we will develop the optimal solution for your processing task.


Adhesives / Sealants

PMH and PML Planetary Mixing and Kneading Machines are especially suited for the production of adhesives and sealants. BP Tank Press-outs can be used to empty the system tanks of the mixing and kneading machines.

Agricultural Chemicals

Pesticides protect plants or plant products from organisms that could damage them. The Grinding & Dispersing Business Unit delivers the right technology for the production of pesticides – whether by wet or dry processing.

Agricultural Chemicals

Battery

Based on many years of experience, NETZSCH offers an extensive portfolio of machines and equipment for dry and wet grinding, mixing, homogenization, dispersion, delamination, separation and deaeration, as well as analysis for the production of battery slurries. 

Cellulose / Pulp

The extraction of cellulose is a complex process overall. A whole series of mechanical and chemical steps are required to first separate cellulose from the natural impurities and then refine it until chemically pure. The specially developed CONDUX Model CS 500/1000-Z High-performance Cutting Mill is used in this process. Here, the feedstock is finely ground using a multi-blade rotor (16 cutter bars on the perimeter) and a multitude of fixed cutting blades along with a special screen insert.

Ceramics / Glass

To this day, ceramics have proven their value in a multitude of applications. Continuous advancements mean that ceramics are also of interest for new applications which require durability, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and temperature stability – and, at the same time, a low specific weight. Such new high-tech materials achieve strengths that are comparable with those of metals.

Ceramics / Glass

Nano Applications

The production of very fine particles by grinding coarse particles is referred to as the dispersion method or "top-down" process. For such grinding tasks, high energy densities such as those realized in agitator bead mills must be available. They are employed in many branches of industry for grinding raw materials into the nanometer range as well as for dispersion of fine pigments and products from "bottom-up" processes.

Nano Applications

Paint

Paint is a coating material based on organic binders and, depending on the composition of the binding agent, can contain organic solvents and/or water. The organic or inorganic pigments that are finely dispersed in the binder give the paint its color. In general, paint is composed of binders, solvents, fillers, pigments and additives.

Paint

Pigments / Dyes

A world without color would be dull and drab. The elements and substances that make everything colorful are, on the one hand, divided according to the chemical structure into inorganic and organic colorants. On the other hand, the designation pigment or dye is geared toward how the colorant behaves in a particular medium. Therefore, the distinction between pigment and dye is not rigid and a single substance can be both a pigment and a dye at the same time.

Pigments / Dyes

Printing Inks

Printing inks are finely dispersed, liquid to pasty mixtures which are made up of colorants such as pigments, binders (oil-varnish) and additives such as thinners, wax dispersions, etc.
