The core competences of Neos are:

complete-raw1

Neos is able to characterize in their own laboratories and with partner universities.

The typical characterizations are:

Slurry

  • Milling time Residue
  • Viscosity, Density, Solid Content
  • Thixotropy

Compaction

  • Moisture
  • Apparent density
  • Pressing pressure
  • Post-press expansion
  • Green mechanical strength

Drying process

  • Apparent density
  • Dry mechanical strength
  • Hydroplasticity
  • Kiln entrance mechanical strength

Firing process

  • Colour
  • LOI
  • Lineal shrinkage
  • Pyroplasticity index
  • Apparent density
  • Water absorption
  • Open and closed porosity
  • Fired mechanical strength
  • Organic material estimate
  • Black core
  • Dilatometry
  • Scanning electron microscopy (SEM)
  • Heating microscope
