Spark Plasma Sintering

SPS (aka FAST or Field Assisted Sintering Technology) allows for the rapid application of temperature and pressure via high-density pulsed current within a controlled atmosphere. SPS is the ideal consolidation and bonding method for all of your materials including metals, refractory alloys, nanomaterials, ultra-high temp ceramics, and more. The team here at Cal Nano has over a decade of SPS experience sintering tens of thousands of samples with a wide variety of materials.Cal Nano SPS/FAST ...

Cryogenic Milling

Cryogenic Milling has been proven to be one of the best techniques to produce large quantities of nanostructured/nanocrystalline materials which greatly improves the mechanical properties compared to their conventional counterparts. CalNano’s facilities include multiple cryomilling systems designed to safely process materials such as elemental metals, metal matrix composites, intermetallic compounds and more.
