The main task of the Materials Preparation Facilities is to organize and realize the preparation and manufacturing of metallic and ceramic samples of our Institute.
- Synthesis and preparation,
- Microstructure definition,
- Cold and hot forming of metallic and ceramic samples.
A whole range of experimental devices is used to prepare samples from a few grams up to 300g.
We inherited our knowledge on both classical and unconventional techniques from the former «Centre d’Etudes de Chimie Metallurgique» in Vitry-sur-Seine. From this basis, we develop new equipments in order to manufacture new cutting edge materials.
