Our
Products

These refined elements play a vital role in advancing technology, promoting sustainability, and supporting key industries such as energy, transportation, manufacturing and national defense.

Nickel powders of different morphology, composition, and particle sizes can be produced using Westwin’s on-site pilot plant equipment after the commissioning. Many types of powders will be identical to those produced by the carbonyl method at VALE plants in Canada and the UK or other carbonyl operations. However, out of more than 20 products produced by INCO before VALE’s takeover, only 4 currently remain. All of these products can be produced by Westwin to reintroduce these products to the market. In addition, because of the operation’s size, Westin can produce product batches specifically for individual clients.

Other products include alloy powder comprising nickel, iron and cobalt in different compositions. Most of these powders have spherical structures, but it is also possible to produce filamentary alloy powders. Westwin plans to add alloy powder production equipment to the pilot plant before the end of 2024.

 

The carbonyl process can also be used to deposition thin nickel coatings onto carbon fibres and other materials. Westwin can also produce metal-coated products such as nickel-coated carbon, nickel-coated glass, or ceramic powders. New equipment will have to be purchased and commissioned to produce these products.
