Transmet Aluminum Flakes are commonly used in chemical reactions that require aluminum. Aluminum Flakes are used in batteries, fuel cells, catalyst production, and more.
Why Transmet Aluminum Flakes?
To quote a research study that Transmet flakes were tested in “Shape makes a Difference”. Aluminum flakes tend to be about 1 mm square and 25 microns thick. This means there is a lot of surface area in each flake. In the video below you will see 60,000,000 flakes made in 30 seconds.
As the flake dissolves in a chemical reaction the thickness reduces while the surface are remains the same. This offers a significant advantage over a aluminum powder. The flakes have a large surface area but yet offer a significant mass for each flake. This makes the flakes very stable in handling and transporting.
Our standard production alloy of aluminum is P-0303.This is 99.92 or better pure aluminum.
Transmet has been involved in several process patents that were based on the use of our flakes.
