The tape casting process begins with the selection of raw materials. At Maryland Tape Casting, we stock powders for use in many applications.

We also work with powder supplied and/or specified by our customers. An initial formulation is determined based on the desired green tape properties and the intended use. It is critical to determine the right balance of ingredients in order to produce tape that will meet the expectations and specifications of the customer. We have experience with an extensive number of recipes utilizing different dispersants, binder systems, plasticizers, etc.
Here are some of the powders our engineers have experience with:
  • Aluminum Oxide
  • Aluminum Nitride
  • Barium (Strontium) Titanate
  • Boron Nitride
  • Cordierite
  • Ferrite
  • Glass Frit / Silicates
  • Lead Zirconate Titanate
  • Magnesium Oxide
  • Manganese Oxide
  • Mixed Metals
  • Mullite
  • Nickel Oxide
  • Partially/Fully-stabilized Zirconium Oxide
  • Polycrystalline Diamond
  • Silicon Nitride
  • Silicon Carbide
