Focus

Metal Acetylacetonates (ACACs)

With over 20 years' experience and technical expertise, PCAS has developed over thirty organometallic formulations for the surface treatment of glass.

With a range of over 10 products in routine production, in powder or solution form, the simple or modified acetylacetonates suit the most specific applications of glass manufacturers. Particularly adapted to Spray Pyrolisis Deposit technology, these products can also be enhanced and applied by CVD technology.

Besides providing coloring and aesthetic effects to the glass, thin film deposit of PCAS organometallics helps to:

  • Improve the capacity to absorber reflect light
  • Optimize sun screening
  • Increase resistance to abrasion and scratches
  • Modify electrical or magnetic properties

Batteries

PCAS is manufacturing, on a custom basis, materials dedicated to batteries and energy storage solutions. Electrolytes, membranes, cathodes and anodes components are the key products PCAS can offer to its customers.

Thanks to flexible production facilities that can supply products in quantities ranging from 100 kg to several tons and our test center providing the opportunity to pre-evaluate formulations, PCAS is the partner of choice to develop formulations adapted to your needs.
