Current Chemicals is a specialty materials manufacturer that performs chemical manufacturing, piloting, research and development work for customers' formulations in diverse markets. We offer wet precipitation and solid-state chemical processing from lab scale through scale-up to specialty and bulk production.
Research & Development
Our team of scientists and engineers perform material identification and development for customers’ unique applications. For over 70 years, we’ve provided continuous production process innovation and optimization for new and existing materials.
We can develop a pilot scale production process from the lab scale process and run short-term piloting as a service or pilot as part of the process scale-up.
Specialty & Bulk Production
We can meet our customers’ large scale bulk production needs with capacities of more than 1,000 metric tons per year. We can also manufacture specialty products, including high purity (4N, 5N) materials, at smaller commercial scales.
We pride ourselves on delivering high quality products and use our in-house analytical capabilities to monitor product quality and enable new material development and optimization.
We have an extensive history of scaling up production processes for successful commercialization. We have existing equipment at lab scale, pilot scale, and production scale which allows us to serve customers on each step of their commercialization journey.
