Core Competence: Customer-Specific Particle and Component Design
Our core competence in powder metallurgy is the customer-specific design of chemical and physical properties, including particle size, surface structure, granularity, and consistency of the technology metals (also called refractory metals) tungsten, molybdenum, tantalum, niobium, and rhenium. We then mechanically condense, press, sinter, and roll the powders into metal bars. Using special metalworking techniques, we turn these metal bars into customer-specific components, whose unique chemical and physical properties make them virtually indispensable in many key technologies.

For more than 40 years, the H.C. Starck AMPERIT® brand stands for high quality and reliability in the global thermal spray powder market. Our business is defined by our customer focus and partnerships, which have made us one of the most successful spray powder manufacturers in the world. The H.C. Starck facilities in Laufenburg and Goslar exploit a number of manufacturing processes, including smelting, sintering, agglomerating, blending, cladding, gas and water atomization, and spheroidization.
