Our Core Technologies

Ferrofluid »
A ferrofluid is a stable colloidal suspension of sub-domain magnetic nano particles in a liquid carrier. The particles, which have an average size of about 100Å (10 nm), are coated with a stabilizing dispersing agent (surfactant) which prevents particle agglomeration even when a strong magnetic field gradient is applied to the ferrofluid.

Ferrofluidic Seals »
Using ferrofluid to create a liquid o-ring around a rotating shaft, we patented the first Ferrofluidic® seals which quickly became the gold standard for demanding precision sealing and rotation applications. Ferrofluidic seals use a multi-stage approach to seal even ultra-high vacuum systems.

Thermal Solutions »
A thermoelectric module moves heat through the module from one side to the other using low voltage DC power. A single module can both heat and cool, making it ideal for precise temperature control applications.

Fabricated Quartzware »
Fused quartz is extremely pure silica glass. Quartz material is shaped into component parts that are used in manufacturing processes that require exceptional purity. Learn more about the technology of fused quartz.

Advanced Ceramics »
Advanced ceramics are high-purity manufactured materials that can be fabricated into specialized component parts. With a variety of available materials each offering unique performance characteristics, advanced ceramics are used for precision manufacturing applications that require high purity, exceptional strength and more.

Vacuum Coating Solutions »
Using high-voltage electricity to vaporize materials like gold, platinum and titanium, electron beam evaporation technology uses physical vapor deposition (PVD) for thin film coating applications.

SiFusion Furnaceware »
SiFusion uses patented technology to fabricate and assemble a complete line of clean structural elements from poly silicon, the same material as the wafer itself.
