Lurederra has developed an own technology to manufacture totally synthetic nanoparticles, which permits to obtain the morphology and size desired thereby achieving an adjustment and control of their chemical activity, specificity and selectivity, allowing to produce different types of nanoparticles for such varied uses as polishes lenses, catalysts and photovoltaic cells, among others.
The great versatility of the FSP technology (Flame Spray Pirolisis) developed by Lurederra allows to produce nanoparticles of ceramic and metallic oxides (simple and multicomponent) of more than 60 elements of the Periodic Table as well as nanoparticles of noble metals.
For that, it counts with 4 nanoparticles production lines of own design and with a joint production capacity of around 13 Tn per year of highly sophisticated nanoparticles.
Lurederra is currently able to provide specific nanoproducts developed customized for specific industrial applications of its customers. Within the possibilities they are include, for example, nonstick and anticorrosion coatings for metals, coatings that provide properties of high water and oil repellency to substrates as diverse as construction materials, textiles, paper and plastics or heat barrier properties for crystals. In short, Lurederra is able to introduce nanotexturization effects in almost any substrate by first converting a small area in a large surface to then endowed it with the effect desired. And all thanks to nanotechnology.
Additionally, through its subsidiary company TECNAN, it ensures that the nano-products developed by the customers of Lurederra can be manufactured and commercialized at industrial scale without any problem regarding supply of raw materials or semi-finished products.
Ultimately, Lurederra is very active at both national and international level in one of the most directly industrializable areas within the field of nanoparticles, such as production, processing and use in systems and organic-inorganic interfaces, an aspect which is also essential for a global development in nanotechnology and for the creation of a nanotechnological market where short-term successes are obtained.
