99.9% PURE SILVER CATALYST ENHANCES FORMALDEHYDE PRODUCTION


With our specialized expertise in precious metals, Materion manufactures high purity silver catalyst used in formaldehyde production. Our silver catalyst is available in crystalline or needle form, in a wide spectrum of screen sizes to meet customer requirements.

VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS DEPENDENT ON SILVER CATALYSTS

Because of its unique chemical properties, silver catalyst is important in creating multiple industrial compounds. Formaldehyde is the building block of solid plastics adhesives, laminating resins for construction plywood and particle board. Our silver catalysts are used in formaldehyde production for products such as finishes for paper, electronic equipment, textiles, surface coatings that resist heat and scratches, dinnerware, appliance casings, packaging materials, automotive parts, electrical insulating materials, toys, glue, varnishes and disinfectants.

PURE SILVER CATALYST IS COST EFFICIENT

Our leading-edge manufacturing process provides an advanced material solution for needle silver catalyst. A number of factors contribute to the cost efficiency including:

  • High Surface Area
  • High Yield
  • Long Catalyst Bed Life
  • High Purity – typically 99.9% with less than 100 ppm trace elements

100 YEARS OF PRECIOUS METAL EXPERTISE

Our long history of precious metals management provides the background for Materion’s advanced materials solutions. Our silver catalyst offers a number of advantages to our customers including:
