As a business, we have built a reputation for outstanding customer service and have the flexibility to produce a range of mixed metal precipitated salts of different chemical compositions and oxidation states. Alkali Earth and Transition Metal Nitrates can be supplied as either a solution or as a flaked (none dusting) hydrate.

We work closely with clients to produce materials with physical properties such as bulk density, particle size distribution, specific surface area, tailored to meet the requirements of different applications. Our Development Team has expertise in the management of co-precipitation to deliver defined structure particles.
