Selective Glass Batching

Selective glass batching is method of raw material preparation that can improve melting of industrial glass.  This technology has been patented by CSL Materials in the United States and abroad.

Nanocoating

CSL Materials holds a patented method of coating larger ceramic particles with very fine particles.  This technology can be used to evenly apply sintering dopants or to change the surface chemistry of particles during slurry preparation.
