Visit us at Ceramics Expo 2022, Aug. 30-31, booth 1224
Do not miss this leading event in the Ceramics Industry in north America. For many years, Ceramics Expo has been the place to discover the latest materials and technologies. In fact, the trade show gathers more than 350 exhibitors of the the whole supply chain.
Once again, Baikowski International Corporation is looking forward to see you there, on booth 1224, in the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland.
Find us here, close to the entrance!
And discover our new ready to use range of slurries
Ceramics Expo 2022 is not only an opportunity to discuss your technical challenges, but also to discover our new SLA range of products.
Find us at Ceramitec 2022, June 21 – 24, Hall C2 Booth 513
Meet us among more than 350 exhibitors at the meeting point for the international ceramics industry. It is a good opportunity to share expertise and make connections in just a few days! Ceramitec is also taking place at the same time as Analytica & Automatica.
We have come such a long way since the last edition of ceramitec in 2018!
Ceramitec on-site is back in Munich, Germany. We are looking forward to welcome you at our booth #513 in hall C2. A large part of our teams will be there. Indeed, R&D, sales & marketing teams from Baikowski & Mathym will be happy to help you regarding your technical challenges and projects. Let’s take advantage of the event to investigate a custom-made solution for your needs!
More than 350 exhibitors are expected at ceramitec this year. Do not hesistate to peruse the exhibitors list.

Ramping-up is a critical step for start-ups! Here we are: the dispersion of nano-zirconia developed by Mathym is now commercially available. After a 3-year development cycle, the Mathym team succeeded in multiplying the production capacity for its new dispersed nano-zirconia by a factor of 30. Indeed, the zilight® production follows an investment in a new industrial reactor. This project was initiated to meet the growing market demand for the development of novel applications.
Technical aspects of zilight®
zilight® is available either doped (with yttria (YSZ), CeO2, Gd2O) or undoped (ZrO2). Mathym’s know-how lead not only to high-end zirconia nanoparticles, but also to state-of-the-art nano-dispersions. zilight® is available dispersed in various solvents & resins:
The solid content can go up to 70% depending on the dispersion medium.
zilight® exhibits a very high refractive index, ideal in the design of high-end optical materials. Moreover, zilight® preserves a high level of transparency in nanocomposites. It will be your favorite nanofiller for encapsulation materials, improving visible LED device efficiency. It can also act as an additive for advanced ceramics (sintering aid), for display materials (refractive index enhancer), or for coatings (scratch resistance).
By making zilight® commercially available, Mathym goes one step further into its diversification strategy implemented in 2015 at Baikowski®. Due to its high refractive index, this product is mainly targeted at the optics and photonics markets. However, the energy & environment markets will benefit from its properties for demanding and emerging technical applications such as fuel cells.
Batt4EU is a battery-focused partnership which was initiated under the Horizon Europe Programm. This European partnership aims at reaching a competitive and sustainable industrial value-chain for batteries inside the old continent. It brings the vision to drive the transformation towards a carbon-neutral society.
The BEPA stands for Battery European Partnership Association.
This association constitutes the private side of Batt4EU – the public side being the European Commission. The BEPA regroups all the battery stakeholders from the European Research Community. It was created in 2020.
Baikowski joined the BEPA in early 2021. In december 2021, there were already 180 members.
Advanced materials & manufacturing BEPA working group
The main mission of Technical Working Groups (TWGs) is to identify, prioritize and draft the Research & Innovation topics which will be submitted to the European Commission as recommendations for the next Horizon Europe Work Programs. There are six TWGs in total, in order to cover the whole value chain.
Baikowski is part of the 2nd Technical Working Group : Advanced materials and manufacturing.
By being part of the BEPA, Baikowski goes one step further into the research in the battery field.
Indeed, we are convinced that fine oxides, including high purity alumina, will play a key role in the future of the battery. This future is full of challenges; make the battery safer, smaller, last longer and increase its energy density. We believe that our products can play a part in taking up those challenges thanks to the high level of control we have on their properties.
Let’s take an example of downsizing. First of all, we highly control the particle size and size distribution of our powders. If our fine particles of Al2O3 are used as a filler or as coated layer for Li-ion battery separator, then the thickness of the Al2O3 layer is also closely monitored. In the end of the day, the thickness of the finished separator is also highly controlled and contributes to downsizing the battery cell.
The ceramic nanofillers are nanoparticles of oxides embedded into a matrix of diverse materials (polymers, resins, metal…). The “classical” nanofillers are meant to lower the cost of a material by replacing a higher value material. Furthermore, ceramic nanofillers have the benefit of strengthen the physical properties of the matrix, namely its mechanical, optical or thermal properties.
Moreover, we’ll show here a new type of nanofillers, designed for high performance applications. We are talking about the agglomerate-free nanomaterial dispersions.
Properties of the innovative ceramic nanofillers
The agglomerate-free nanomaterials dispersed in various media are bringing outstanding properties:
High solid loading
Mathym® and Baikowski® are producing several ceramic nanoparticles, which can be used as nanofillers. Here are some examples including high purity alumina (Al2O3) nano-dispersions, titanium dioxide (TiO2), ceria (CeO2) and zirconia (ZrO2), as known as zilight® for Mathym:
The nanoparticles are agglomerate-free and delivered as a suspension. They are also known as nano-dispersions. Well dispersed, these nanoparticles used as nanofillers are solving some paradoxes:
Find us at Ceramics Expo 2021, Aug 30 – Sept 1, Booth 800
Meet us among more than 300 exhibitors dedicated to the entire advanced ceramics and glass manufacturing supply chain. It is a good opportunity to make networking connections and leads in just a couple of days!

Moreover, you will discover how far we go on customization. Eventually, we may find a way to work together thanks to a new tailor-made product. Open new opportunities of development!
The biggest exhibition on battery industry in China
Baikowski® is looking forward to meeting you at the 14th China International Battery Fair, 16-19 March 2021 in the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center. This year, our local team is hosted by Gomore, our long-time research and business partner.
Visit the booth 9T081 in hall 9 to meet our local sales manager. Let’s talk about how to take full advantage of high purity alumina in your battery projects! We will also introduce Mathym nano-dispersions dedicated to battery applications.
Meet us at the Aeronautics & Space Innovative Technology Summit (AITS) Bremen, Germany… Wherever you are! Indeed, the event is fully digital this year due to global sanitary situation.
However, our sales and R&D teams are at least as engaged as if it was a physical fair. They are available at any time to answer your questions and discuss around your technical projects.
We will especially focus on Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) applications and Spinel for detection applications.
This virtual event takes place during five days, beginning on September 21st.
