The piezoelectric powders, as well as additional custom-formulation products, will be available for commercial and defense-related applications.

APC International (APCI) recently announced the startup of a Pennsylvania-based ceramic powder manufacturing facility for the production of piezoelectric powders. Hammond Lead Products (HLP), a chemical producer centered in Indiana, is working with APCI to match its lead-related materials science technologies with APCI’s array of established high-performance lead-zirconate-titanate powders.

The piezoelectric powders, as well as additional custom-formulation products, will be available through APCI and HLP for applications in commercial and defense-related markets. Startup of this production installation is expected before the end of 2009.
