Our Ukrainian partner Materials Research Centre (MRC) offers manufacturing of SHS Reactor.

Our partners from MRC (Kiev, Ukraine) design and manufacture customized laboratory reactors for Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis

Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis (SHS), also known as combustion or autoignition synthesis, creates materials by starting an exothermic reaction among powdered reactants. It stands out for being self-sustaining—generated heat continues the synthesis without needing an external heat source. SHS is widely used in making various materials like ceramics, intermetallic compounds, and composites.

The design of a reactor for Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis (SHS) is a critical aspect of ensuring the success and safety of the process. The reactor must be able to initiate and sustain the exothermic reaction while allowing for control over key parameters.

 We provide development of  SHS technologies, design and manufacturing of customized specialized equipment intended for synthesis of novel materials using non-critical raw materials as a precursor for SHS technology.
