September 1, 2009 Lewis Center, OH - To meet the demand of its materials customers, NexTech recently expanded its ceramic manufacturing capacity and introduced a new line of premium ceramic powders through its division. The product of years of development experience at NexTech, the Premium Powder line is tailored to provide improved ceramic processing behavior at lower temperatures. The products go through rigorous quality control systems and are provided with detailed and thorough characterization data that are unparalleled in the fuel cell industry.
