Automotive Paint

Modern automotive paint must withstand rain, hail, ice and snow, heat and cold as well as years of cleaning with car-wash brushes. It is also exposed to gravel and crushed stones on unpaved roads, desert sand, salt on icy roads or the UV rays of the sun. The paint has to stand up reliably to all of these factors and stresses.
After the CDP primer coat (cathodic dip), 3 or 4-layer paint superstructures, consisting of filler, base coat and clear coat, are applied. These are very complex and must be very finely adapted to one another and coalesce a multitude of different properties. A layer of paint that is one-tenth of a millimeter thick has the same requirements for mechanical and chemical robustness as for excellent color stability or special gloss effects. 
New tendencies toward aqueous systems, powder coating, radiation curing systems or "nano-paints" also provide for very active research and development.

The next Generation of Agitator Bead Mills

NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH has now developed the new Alpha® modular machine platform. Compared to earlier-generation machines, this series is designed such that different grinding systems can be mounted on the same base platform as appropriate for a defined drive capacity.

Horizontal disk mill System TetraNex® Type Discus

The disk grinding system sets new benchmarks regarding capacity and flexibility. You profit from well-engineered technology that has already been proved for processing different products.

Circulation mill system Type Zeta®

The circulation grinding system for all fields of application. Suitability for all viscosities and nearly all products is achieved with different grinding media from 90 µm to 3 mm. This provides highest product qualities and fineness down to the nanometer range.

MasterMill Submersible Basket Mill

The MasterMill (Premier PSM) Submersible Basket Mill is an exceptionally versatile dispersion system that can be applied to a wide range of processing industries.

Laboratory agitator bead mill MiniZeta

The universally applicable laboratory circulation mill MiniZeta is essential for research and development. Its easy operation, equipped with easy to clean tools of stainless steel, achieves the machine excellent results down to the Sub-Micron range.

NETZSCH Omega®

Successful dispersion requires targeted force in order to separate agglomerated particles. The Omega® Economic Disperser applies dispersive forces then and there, where they are especially effective: in the Omega® disperser body, energy is transformed into very high speeds under pressure.

Laboratory agitator bead mill LabStar

The multi-functional laboratory mill LabStar enables scientific academic work even at difficult research and development tasks and convinces by easy handling. The laboratory mill LabStar is the smallest grinding unit of NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH that enables an exact scale-up to comparable production machines.

MiniSeries / MicroSeries - Laboratory Mills for Product Development of Smallest Batches

The compact, universally applicable laboratory circulation mills of the MiniSeries impress with their easy handling when processing very small quantities from 0.25 to 0.5 l up to particle sizes in the nanometer range. It is possible to conduct many tests with low loss of product and significant results within a short period of time.

Finest wet grinding technology – the laboratory mills of the MicroSeries are an investment in the future for new product developments of different fields of application of pigmented ink jets, technical ceramics, cosmetics, pharmaceutical applications and nano-scale high-tech products.

NETZSCH Omega® 60

Successful dispersion requires targeted force in order to separate agglomerated particles. The Omega® Economic Disperser applies dispersive forces then and there, where they are especially effective: in the Omega® disperser body, energy is transformed into very high speeds under pressure.


Mixing and De-Aerating

Ψ-Mix® Inline Disperser

The Ψ-Mix® inline disperser is a revolutionary system for mixing and dispersing solids in liquids. Homogeneous, fine dispersions with exactly reproducible quality are achieved through a controlled, emission-free process.

PMD / PMD-VC Intensive Mixers

For processing large batches of moderate- to high-viscosity product, the PMD and PMD-VC intensive mixers are the machines of choice. The stationary mixing and dispersing units are successfully utilized primarily in the paint, printing ink and pigment industries.

MasterMix® Dissolver

The NETZSCH MasterMix® dissolvers are fast, high-powered dispersing units for simple mixing tasks. They can easily process products with viscosities up to 100 Pa·s from a broad range of applications.

MaxShear Inline Disperser

Compact enough to be included at virtually any point in your process. The self-pumping portable unit features rotor/stator based technology with multiple stator configurations available.

VMS - Vertical MaxShear Rotor/Stator Mixer

Featuring a precision high-speed rotor, which creates a vigorous pumping action as it draws liquid into the stator inlet. Liquid is discharged at high velocity through machined slots in the stator.

NETZSCH DA / DA-VS Vacuum De-Aerator

The NETZSCH Vacuum De-Aerator offers a simple way to remove even micronized gas and air pockets from liquids of various viscosities or from viscous compounds and pastes.

ShearMaster Laboratory Dissolver

The ShearMaster laboratory dissolver is designed for batch sizes of 1 to 10 l and is equipped with a 1.1 kW variable speed drive.

Laboratory De-Aerator MiniVac

The MiniVac laboratory-scale De-Aerator was specially developed for small batches or initial tests and – like the production-scale NETZSCH vacuum de-aerator – operates according to the VTR principle (vacuum - thin film - rotary process). With extreme ease of operation you can remove micronized pockets of gas and air from free-flowing products of various viscosities as well as from viscous pastes and compounds.

Micro Ψ-Mix® Laboratory Inline Disperser

With the laboratory-scale version of the successful Ψ-Mix® Inline Disperser you can rely on innovative dispersion technology with emission-free inline operation for optimal wetting of powders in liquids.
